    Twentyfour inch wheel track bike.

    Does anyone have any knowledge of where I can find a used 24" wheel track bike. "For my 8 year old". Complete bike would be best but would consider a frame to build up. And what about wheels? These little suckers a tough to find. I've priced a Havnoonian but is a little steep for my budget currently. I keep an eye on eBay, but have not had any luck. Even tried eBay in several European countries. I'm considering a frame building school to build my own. Help me please.

    Dunno about used, but Paul Sadoff at Rock Lobster recently built this one for a 10 year old girl:

    You could convert a Felt or Pinarello Junior's bike for cheaper than framebuilding school, I think. $800 Felt 24", $900 felt 26", $850 Pinarello 24"

    Nice!!! Frame for 24" wheels makes dropouts look GIGANTIC! Or maybe dropouts are gigantic?
