I am at a crossroads right now where I have the opportunity to bike up a track bike or a road bike for the same amount of money.
The new track bike uses some of my old parts, and a lot of new ones. The new road bike is completely new and I'm getting it through my team discount.
Bianchi Pista Concept frame
Dura-ace track crankset
Phils laced with black spokes to black non-machined deep-vs
thomson mtb stem flipped
selle italia slr saddle
right now I have crankset, bars, front wheel, rear rim, bb, and saddle for the track bike so I'd have to buy the frame, stem, seatpost, and rear hub. The road bike I'd get for completely new with a little bit of a discount. I have neither a road bike nor a full track bike right now. What do you think I should go for??
It's done. I'm going with the track bike. I have a crappy road bike that isn't even worth riding, and I used to have a decent track bike. No normal road bike could ever make me as happy as riding at night on the fix. Sorry for the stupid thread, I just needed some backup to go against practicality.
Track bike ftw, good decision!
Earlier today I just went to my LBS and they finished building up my Fuji Track 06. I couldn't be more happy buying it. I just didn't post a thread yet since my father currently took my digital camera with him to go out of town, so I can't post any pictures. When he returns.. I'll post some bike pr0n.
BTW Track bike ftw! I have so much more fun riding fg than I on a roadie.
