    Good frame?

    ive been riding a fixed gear for about 1 year, i like going fast but i have toe overlap so it depletes my ability to do some tricks. im looking for a good frame for a 650c front wheel or can barspin with a 700c good for tricks ,but it can still go fast aswell, and my toe clips WILL NEVER hit my wheel. thanks alot
