Bike fit

Building up a frame for a test ride (as soon as I glue the actual fork together.) The gearing it’s got right now is somewhat eccentric; it’s a CK singlespeed hub in back with the top 3 sprockets from an 11-27 cassette (21/24/27?) and an alpine double up front. So it’s a 6 speed with 9-speed spacing and really low gearing (48→25 gear inches) which will be fine for looping around the block seeing whether pieces fall off, but terrible for any sort of actual riding.

Needless to say it’s a little big for a Dust Mite.
