I have been looking around for a frame with track ends and preferably trackish geometry that only accepts 650c wheels and have not been able to locate one in my size (around 49 to 50cm seat tube c to c). I was wondering if anyone has any info on where I might find one or get one built. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Hmmm. Been tossing the same idea around in my head lately. Two things though: 1) possible availability/price of rims or tires and 2) BB drop is almost nonexistent 20-30mm MAX which makes for(I would guess) a very twitchy ride. I'm looking at a Spicer custom aluminum frame ~$400-900, not bad for custom. The plus side: smaller wheels make for a shorter wheelbase and a lighter bike. Some argue the smaller wheels accelerate faster as well. Do you plan on riding track or street?
