Interested in the geometry of this and a close up of the dropouts would be appreciated if possible.

BB height is my main interest as I'm looking for a fixed conversion. Any photos of it built up?

No photos of it built up, but I can drop some wheels in it tomorrow morning & take a side on view. Dropouts are standard for a rear Mech, not Horizontal...
Anything else you need to know?? Measurements?

I'd like to keep it, but after tweaking my position over time, the 54cm TT is just a fraction too long for me. Otherwise I would have kept it & rebuilt it. It's a lovely frame!

Actually, I think 22cm is going to be too low. Even with a couple extra cm for a 23mm tyre it's still a way from 27-30cm which is where most road/fixed and track bikes seem to sit. Shame as it's just my size!
