Track Bike Needed

Postby mulgabill on Thu 29/Jan/09 10:50am

I am looking for a track bike for my son but am having trouble finding one large enough. Does anyone know where I could get a bike or frame with a 60-61cm Top Tube?

My son is 193cm just turned 15 and still growing. We tried the largest Avanti Pista and it is too small. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Talk to Jeff Anderson at Kiwi bikes http://www.kiwibikes.co.nz
He'll custom make you one :thumbsup:
Or another place worth contacting is Reiker http://www.reikercycles.co.nz
Pretty sure they do (or used to do) a custom frame.
Nothing springs to mind of an "off the shelf" brand that makes an Xl size track frame.

I've got one for sale
It's a big size as I'm 6 foot 3 inch as well
Its a 80's frame but in good nick. only brought it a year ago, new chain, and other bits and pieces but no longer track as I found a thing called singletrack.
At work at the mo, can send ya pictures later on, only want a couple of hundred for it

Yes tried the XL Avanti, it is to small and needs better forks as well.
