Scandium track frame

 all of 2 lbs. 5 oz.  , this frame will be the third I have built for this young racer. The frame will take 650 wheels as this rider is an 11 year old and not quite 5 feet tall. She's a district champion and has endless enthusiasm for riding.
 The family was lucky enough to find a Reynolds Ouzo Pro 650 fork.....a rarity. Her road bike had a Wound-Up , also a great lightweight carbon fork and still in production in the USA.
The rear dropouts are from Ahrens design and have bronze inserts that wrap around the axle for maximum support. These aren't cheap but are worth the price. With luck ,this frame will do duty at regional and national championship events.
