Hi everyone, so this is my first post here, although I've been lurking for a while and have learned a great deal. Anyways, I'm working on my first conversion. I bought a Fuji SJ-10 that I'm going to paint and build up as I get the money. So I have two questions. First, the frame is pretty tiny, it still might be a little big for me, but after a month of looking it was the only thing in my area that would even be close to fitting me. So anyways the wheels are smaller than 700c, and I'd like to put new 650c track wheels on it. Does anyone have a source where I could get a pair? I've checked ebay and have googled it a bunch but haven't come up with any results. Suggestions? Colors options would be nice, and I read here that you could find deep v's, but where would I get them built up? I'm also open to any other suggestions as color options would be nice, but I'll probably just go with chrome anyways. I don't really have any bike shops around me so I'm trying to do most of the ordering online.
Second, and the more important of the two questions. Just to see what it looked like, I tried to throw my boyfriends 700c wheels on it. The back wheel fits, although just barely, and the front wheel WOULD fit, but the axle isn't the standard 15mm. It seems to be 9/16 and the fork is built for that so the bigger axle won't fit in there. Am I going to be able to find a wheel in any size with an axle that will fit in the fork or am I going to be stuck with the front wheel that came on the bike? That would suck, the wheel is kind of trashed..
I know this was long but please help, I really want to start working on building this up, but as of right now I'm at a dead end... thanks in advance.
