    The seat tube is 43cm c-t, but it has a rather stretched out 53cm top tube, which is why it works out very well with a pull back townie bar. I got it on closeout for a mere $170, which is a steal....

    That's pretty much typical for a high quality butted steel track bike. My 2011 49cm Soma Rush weighs 18.5 pounds with a front brake and two steel strap-on bottle cages and my vintage 1975 Schwinn...

    Well, clearly the fork isn't original and that crank is a cheap road double with the inside chainring removed. First, you need to determine if it's Italian by checking to see that the BB is 70mm...
