at least they had the decency to release it with a streetable gear ratio.
wheels aren't half bad either.
edit - and thank god it's a good ratio because it would be hard as eff to find replacement rings for that crank.

wait a second.
this looks exactly like the artschool/design bike that absntr posted a while ago. right down to the 4-arm-spider cranks.
except grey instead of green
you know, the one with the photoshopped quads?
It looks like Jamis just launched at Track bike called "sputnik" I saw it today, damn thing is lite. Renolds 631 and easton carbon outfit.
I want one.
I think that Jamis is actually a fairly nice fixed gear offering.
that jamis doesn't look half bad at all.

agreed on the a jamis... if i was gonna get any of these factory fixies i'd go with that.
also, why can't any of these things get some f'n color in em! spice things up! all this grey and black... even the new "green" on the pista is a muddy brownish grey green.
agreed. the black on black trend in cycling bums me out some.Originally Posted by evanyc
the bland color offerings of trek and cannondale and other big names are nothing to write home about either.
maybe it's backlash against bikes of 8-10 years ago... italian frames with the classic red-white-green-blue-yellow fade jobs and bling silver componentry.

the jamis is pretty nice.
i saw the alta print campaign in ARCHIVE awhile back... good campaign, weird looking bike
the bars on the alta,,,
don't you think they look kind of silly?
i'm sure leveling the bars gives you some leverage up hills and such,
but special funiture design team aside, i prefer to have at least some drop in my bullhorns
that jamis sure is looking hot
for real... yum
and i think its a little early to tell,
but preliminary reports coming in indicate that the UNO isn't going to do much
that junk is whack
now if they put those on the shelves of our local walmart/target/bestbuy/cashfarm,,
i bet we'd see a bunch of them on the streets regardless of how they look
then again, i ride a mercier kilo tt
i supose that means i can't really say sh*t can i?
That Jamis looks really nice. Make way for "Jamis Sputnik vs. ..." threads.
comin' soon...................."How do I get the decals off my Jamis?"
thanks in advance.

What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.
i thought we were going to be talking about trek. has it already been talked about that there is a "track" listing on their website?
on the right between cyclocross and tandem. it doesn't lead anywhere yet, though.
I think those Bontrager wheels are hot.
That said, what a ripoff. 850 pounds sterling? I can't imagine passing up a Bob Jackson or a Mercian for this.
It looks like the Fuji Track Pro.
that trek may seem ugly to all you (us) classic/lugged steel/high flange/chrome/1" threaded/quill posengers, but i bet it's one em-effing fast bike on the track.
yeah, that trek looks more like a bike bound for the track than a a fixed gear urban assault vehicle like the others
Fuji Track Pros, for what it's worth, are made in Taiwan. Or so claim the shipping label and frame sticker.
