Frame Material for FG?

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Frame Material for FG?

6í6Ē 220#
masher more than a spinner
Columbus cromo
Columbus zona
Columbus life os

no tricks just long rides as fast as I can pedal

what and why is the better material?

I currently ride an undersized Masi riser uno with 49:15 and I like it but itís a touch small.

My current fixed 49:15 a little small for me but its fun.

Go to your frame builder and give them all the info and they should be able to give you a good sense of what tubing or mix of tubing to use to give you the ride quality you desire. A frame need not be just made out of one kind of tubing. Columbus XCr for me...LOL Though really titanium ; )
