    Finally getting back on a FG bike..

    Had a pair of Fuji Track Pro's which I didn't really jive with -- Parted them both out a few months back and have just been looking for another frame to transfer all of the parts I have lying around.

    Finally found a Bianchi that'll do the trick for now

    Pics to come but until then, here is a picture of the best game ever when I was a kid.

    It just didn't feel solid to me for some reason -- my commuter bike is an 80's steel frame and just feels so solid but still rather light. Biking around just felt and sounded tinny if that makes sense. I did feel however, that the FTP was well made and looked killer

    I have heard that these frames suffer from chain noise/rattle. Did you notice that at all? My TK3 suffers a little from that but not quite as bad I don't think.

    Yeah I think that was the sound I was trying to describe -- chain noise. The frame seems to amplify it or something. Do a search for my FTP thread, I think a few peeps chimed in about that noise too
