    16 inch wheel track bike!!

    Hi, sorry to drop in on this forum. I'm collecting parts to build my new son a track bike. I live in san francisco, and was thinking of contacting a local frame builder to do a frame and fork for us. Then wanted to see if anyone on here was interested in taking on a small project like this? I found 16in velocity arrowheat rims, 16X1 1/8 tires, think I found some 123 lenth cranks. this is going to be a challange, but i know it's possible. a custom set of drop bars would be so cool too! any hope of this happening? thanks for your insite! mike

    I'm curious, is this for a shorter person, or are you from the Moulton school of thought (small wheels are cool)?
