is it true that on 50cm parallax the crank arm hits the tire?

The crank arm and pedals don't. But the tips of my clips do if I'm taking a hard turn.

Yeah it's actually really comfortable. Even went on a 70 mile ride with it on my Kissena. Great feel and comfortable, well, for me that is.

how tall are you? I think if you get a smaller stem, you can get a relaxed yet aggresive geometry with horn dropped down. Other than that, this is a rad steed :D

5'5". I've been playing around with different stems, seat positions, saddles, and bar angles (which works best as I've come to learn). It does look pretty odd, I know, but when I'm riding around it's comfortable. Though ultimately I'm saving up for drop bars.

saddle and bar angle need to be dropped down a bit

For cruising I keep 'em upward, more comfortable and smoother ride. Also, horns were making my hands numb, turned out it was the downward angle of the bar (and hands) that through off my blood flow to the hands. Crazy stuff, like bad, as in by mile 10 I couldn't feel 'em.

Well these aren't meant to have a downward angle

Very nice. The fee l(turning, maneuverability) of the parallax when you ride, how does it compare to the other fixed gear bikes you have?

Thanks

Haha I was wondering how long till someone asked me this. It's incredibly forgiving. It's honestly unbelievable taking turns while shifting weight at how well it moves with me. It's truly as though someone took a track bike and gave the feel of a road bike (criterium).

Haha I removed them when I got home then synched them from my computer, all right side up, but the middle picture for some reason just refuses to invert. I too was getting a kink in my neck. My apologies.
