Tall'ish track frame. Columbus XCr
So, I'm about to have a frame built for me out of columbus XCr tubing. I wanted to run my ideas by the internet before I signed off on them with the frame builder. Here's my basic specs, and what im thinking.
weight: 195 lbs
So, here's what im thinking. 59.5cm Seat Tube. 59 Top Tube. I'm not sure what the merits of different ST and HT angles are; I've heard 74, 75 or 76 degrees. What's a good compromise angle good for TT and sprint races? Probably going to do a 0 degree TT. I'm also not sure about what amount of BB drop there should be?
I also was wondering about track-ends for it. Anyone know who makes nice stainless track-ends? I'd like one with a cutout/relief above the slots.
So, what do people think? Anything else to take into consideration?
