    I don't think Univega ever made any track bikes. Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I don't think they did when they were still Univega, and it doesn't look like they do anymore. The Via Madison looks to only be available as a 2006 model.

    Those paint schemes make me want to take down my old Univega sign and burn it.

    This seems to be one of those, "Oh look, I can buy the rights to the name of a company that hasn't made a bike since 1992 and slap stickers on frames made in Taiwan and hope to cash in on the familiarity of the name"

    type things... Univega made bike-boom gas-pipe road and touring bikes and some mountain bikes. They never made a track frame.

    I have one of there 80's touring rigs. Gran Turismo. Canti's and triple butted chromly. Its geared and it is a very comfy ride. It also came w/ a very cool maroon suede saddle! I think like many Japanese makers at the time the were considered "less than" buy the bike buying public.
