I am short and have trouble finding decent bikes(better quality tubing etc) that I can stand over. A small builder has a sale on some of their production frames which I had lusted over for some years, but even the small is a bit big for me. Would it be possible to redo the top tube so it becomes a step through frame? It would likely involve destroying the paint etc right? I thought I would ask here first before asking them in case it is a totally lame idea.
It's a slightly silly question, but I am guessing it might still be cheaper than asking the builder to build an entirely new bike.
