If your shop doesn't have a hand expansion reamer, maybe you should get one? As far as how much time it might take, reaming a seat tube is significantly less work than cutting a crown race.

Weren't velocity doing a pre-built formula/deep-v gold combo last year? Is that what you're asking about? The Bike Biz probably still has gold Phils, if you want to spend a lot of money.

Well, like the name implies, it's a smaller version of a hi-wheel (which is another common name for penny farthings). Like I said above, it's a 28" wheel. So yes, it's different than a 700c.
