    Hmmm... I'm looking at this on my cell phone, but that looks like a finish-line type photo, which might mean it's a composite. I don't think the wheels look like that. I could be wrong though.

    the wheels don't actually look like that. those are the mavic 5 spoke iO track fronts. http://www.bikesomewhere.com/bikesom.../190/1217/3329

    Yep. Mavic 5-spoke Io front wheels. They aren't allowed in parimutuel keirin racing in Japan, but are ubiquitous in keirins at the worlds and Olympics. This photo is a finish-line photo, which actually is a series of thin slices taken at 1/100th second intervals. The technique of building the photo causes the spokes to seem curved.

    That thing is rediculous. I like the Corima Track frame too.

    sure if you have a spare 10g's laying around.
    NO! It is the FARGATE! It is not some other kind of gate from a movie or TV show that I've never seen! Notice that it has a wheelchair and a pink mohawk? We're not getting sued!
