Building a smallwheeler

Small wheel bicycles are a lot of fun. In general they are more agile than the standard bike with 700c wheels. And they can be just as fast, if speed is your thing. Pictured is a Sillgey Piccolo. It has been modified from the original. The standard frame is fitted with track dropouts, mine has an derailleur hanger that was installed by Circle A Cycles of Providence, RI. They also cut the headtube because I wanted a different look. Building it has been rewarding because I got the look I wanted. The final length of the headtube will be determined after I have ridden it for awhile.
