Default Track Bike

I'm looking at fixed-gear bikes so as to get a track-bike frame geometry.

Of course most of these fixed-gear bikes are free-wheel bikes unless the hub is flipped.

Then I'm looking at aluminum frames so as to get large tubes.

Here is what I found:

GT Meatball Urban Bike

Large frame tubes

If a front brake is wanted then the fork would need to be changed

The rear is a two-speed coaster hub and so the immediate question is how the two-speed hub would work with an engine ?

The tires are slicks !

Tire size is 700 x 35

Motobecane Fixie Cafe

Interesting but the frame geometry looks a little tame

The front brake needs to be right hand pull

Tire size is 700 x 28

Dawes SST-AL

Large frame tubes

The front brake needs to be right hand pull.

The handle bars would need to be changed for a throttle installation

Tire size is 700 x 25

Motobecane Fantom Cross UNO

Frame geometry looks good

But this is a steel frame with smaller tubes

Notable because the tire size is 700 x 32 but has clearance for 700 x 42

Micargi Prestigio

Large aluminum tubes
