Welcome to riding a track frame on the street.
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 wont ride a bike with handlears, cause it just ruins my sqrl suppage.
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.

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.
We have yet to see yours.
That angle is worthless.
Relax, I'm putting new ones up tomorrow. Enjoy the hygiene.
Why even post the link then?
Your bike seems to be balancing fine in those pics, no-handed.
