Hey guys i'm looking to build up a flip flop 700cc paired with a front 650cc bike on a bianchi pista frame. obviously the fork is built for a 700cc so i would have to deal without a brake. i guess my question is how will it effect my riding, it's a horizontal top tube so will the smaller wheel drastically change the dynamic of the ride, will buying taller riser bars/taller stem make it so i don't notice it?
this all for aesthetic purposes of course

Not a very good first post - but can we ask why you are wanting to do this? You mention for looks only, so I'm thinking your want the hot-rod look? I have seen bikes with the 650c in the back, but never the front.

all i saw was, super pista, risers, and 650c.

Do not watch this gif drunk. Holy **** it took me like 10 minutes to stop ouching every time she got hit.

If you really want that 650cc wheel on the front AND want it to look good you should get a fork that fits 650cc wheels.

For max effect, ditch the 650c and go for a 12" wheel and 110mm cranks.

i guess my question is how will it effect my riding,
I'm going to guess that YOUR "riding" won't be affected one bit.
