what do you say to someone 4'10" who wants 700c wheels ?

Well, I could have said no but I remember a bike I made about four years ago . If you are willing to be a little creative it's amazing what a few minor changes can get you in terms of fitting a wider range of people who just might be on the diminutive side. This woman has raced cyclocross on a 26" wheel bike and was really not liking the beating she got from the small wheels finding holes, rather than rolling over them. Now she can roll over them-I just hope that she can steer this bike with the same authority she steered the 26" wheel bike. If that is the case, she'll go faster.
