    No, I'm aware of that. This frame has it worse than most. I ride with 3 other track frame riders. And they ride actuall track frames as well, not just single speed frames.

    They all say my frame has it worse than any other they've seen.

    I won't ride a track or road bike unless it has toe overlap.

    I even had a MTB with overlap briefly, but it was too small for me.

    I won't even ride a bike unless it has three Kilo TTs and 47 gear ratios.

    There's standard track bike toe overlap, and there's damage from a head-on collision. As I said earlier in the thread my money's on the latter.

    Check for ripples or paint/chrome damage on the downtube close to where it meets the head tube. Are you able to *ride* the bike no-handed without feeling like it's going to dive once up to a reasonable speed?

    If there are signs of damage/the bike is unstable in this way take it to a shop - preferably one that also builds/repairs frames. If your downtube is badly damaged you're probably SOL. For what the frame is worth you're better off replacing it.

    If just the fork is a little tweaked they may be able to bend it back (provided it's the stock steel fork of course) or you could find a replacement.

    I have never experienced this toe overlap. You must show it to me

    The fork is fine, it looks like no accident has been had.

    Sorry for four posts in a row in my own thread- but I just saw this photo on FGG. It's a Bianchi Pista that is newer than mine, but not sure if it's 2009. The front wheel is much further from the downtube than mine is.

    Don't try it. You will fall in the water. Plus, that's a foreign country. Posting that picture is like spitting on the graves of our finding fathers.

    I have to go back and add new photos, but imagine bullhorns and a black stem. And no pump.

    *EDIT* Black seatpost, same stem!

    Your bike seems to be balancing fine in those pics, no-handed.
