i've been looking for a small frame too, not much luck, what're the measurements of yours? seat tube and top tube c-t-c? i haven't seen any frames with a top tube shorter than 52 yet

seat tube is 50 ctc and top

seat tube is 50 ctc and top tube is 52 ctc

few bikes have shorter TTs

few bikes have shorter TTs than 52. occasionally you'll find some that are 51... you might need to dive into custom world, or 650c wheels, to get a short enough top tube without vicious toe overlap. some frames are short enough but have an oddly angled head tube and raked fork to compensate - giving it some odd handling characteristics.

i've tried to find small bikes and have been dissatisfied with lots that i've ridden. i'm finally comfortable on a 49/51.5 track bike with steep angles.

yeah, the toe overlap

yeah, the toe overlap doesn't bug me, the bike I put together for winter has a 52t, and 47ctc, it's 49ctt, and it fits well enough, I would do alright but I usually shove my seat all the way back since my knees aren't that great, which stretches out my top tubes by about 3cm, and makes me stick my seatpost down about 2cm, so it throws everything off. I've wanted a 650c bike for years now, but I'm afraid if i get one,it'll make all my 700c bikes feel weird, and I'll go broke having to buy 650c bikes for the rest of my life. I've just started using shorter stems to make up for the top tube, and try to find a shorter seat tube so I still have atleast a handful of seatpost sticking out, so my bars don't feel too high, and the bike doesn't look out of proportion
