As you can see, the clearances between the front wheel are tight. I pushed the envelope here so that those who are less than 5' 10" can still enjoy a lowracer. I have tried a few production lowracers that claim to be compatible with my 34" inseam, but what they failed to mention was that included crank-to-wheel interference!
I am guessing the Tomahawk will fit riders with an inseam down to 32" before you have to choose between mods for a 16 inch front wheel or the deadly pedal strike. For track racing, pedal strike can be acceptable, but don't even think about heading out into the public streets with a bike that may or may not be able to steer more than 3 degrees at any given time. Imagine trying to snake around a car door at high speed!!
Well, tomorrow the seat should be dry and I will add the hard foam and then get the front boom and adjustable bottom bracket installed. There are about 6 more hours of work to do before that initial test ride as long as Murphy stays in hiding.
This is what I will be trying to do next.
Just an ugly photo-chop to show the chain routing.
