    Cheap track bike rundown!

    Okay, okay, I will probably get shot for this, BUT, I've searched long and hard, even been lurking for months for answers to this conundrum. What the heck parts are these ebay rides running?! I know, I know +insert ebay description here+ That answers all! Ha! Also, it's good / bad, frame is okay, wheels are bad, yadda yadda. Lets say you want to change one of those *blanks* out! What is it!? Get the drift? I'll start!

    Mercier Kilo TT
    Dura Ace 16t 1/2" 3/32 cog
    no name lockring
    Kenda Koncept tire 700/23C

    That's all I have, nothing else seems to be stamped, etc. I haven't taken it very far apart yet!

    Anyways, since the question gets asked alot, and in my searching for parts to replace excitement, had questions, I hope this thread can answer alot! Add what you know! Have fun! Be safe! Wear a helmet! Annnnnnnd Go!

    How the eff IS that cheap ebay ride built? What's it built with?! How do I replace that when I don't know what that is?!
