Hi Matteo Generally speaking I've found that when I was taking orders to build a track frame most went for a slighty smaller size, for eg a rider who rode a 58cm road frame would go for a 57cm track frame..........but the point to watch out for is not only does this allow more seat post to be exposed but also the stem, and sometimes this can be a problem if the rider had his stem quite high to begin with, common sense really.
