Turned a budget 650c track bike into something a bit more useful for my partner. Many hacks and bodges. If she likes it I’ll get proper rear brake and bottle cage mounts sorted along with a lower rear bridge to allow a matching rear brake and a better seat collar. If she really likes I’ll look into a thread less steerer swap to loose the adaptor, trim some weight and increase flexibility. I’n the meantime I’ll sort the mudguard stays.
Is it my eyes or does the BB has minimal if not no drop?
Nah you're bang on, it's a junior track frame with small wheels so needs the high BB.
Hoping it's not too sketchy with steep angles and all the weight on the front. Suspect i'll be building her something a bit more chill at some point but she seems to like it!
