    I want a small track bike. For a child. Anything considered, as long as it is structurally sound.

    Thanks. The Kadet is too big. It's a 47cm-equivalent on 700s.

    Got a few 26" wheeled Raleigh kids road bikes from the 70s at our recycling project in Stafford

    A bit heavy but would do the job with a MTB rim built on a BMX hub or respaced 126mm screw on

    How about a Decathlon 7.0kids? You would have to get a fixed hub/wheel made, but as the bike is only about £100 you would be still be quids in.

    Vertical Dropouts?

    ANyway, probably wrong geometry for the boards.

    Good thinking though.

    Got one now. Bit big and heavy but it'll do.

    Thanks everyone.
