    I don't own one but would think a stiff aluminum track bike would be slightly unpleasant for commuting. That said, quite a few people out there ride them so they can't be that bad.

    Im kidding, if someone is seriously considering spending that much money just to buy the Concept, does he really need our okay to buy it and to ride it on the street, I mean honestly 99% of the people that ride them have them for cool points

    If you're considering this for you FIRST street fixed gear, it may be a little much. For recomendations, check that sticky thread.

    If you have the $$$ for it, I'd say it looks pretty good

    Why not, if you're considering it you're obviosly not looking for a comfy touring bike so it'll probably do you well.

    Buy it and ride it into the ground

    it's probably an unfair assertion but i'm basing my opinion on aluminum on a rental road bike (trek 2100) i had on vacation for a few days. i could tell the difference, there was a 'dead' feel as opposed to steel's liveliness, and it didn't handle the bumps or gravel very well. there could be other reasons for this as well though, such as the wheel set. not saying this means the pista concept rides like that bike, i'm sure i'd enjoy the concept better because of the geo. just sayin.

    They are really great bikes. Everyone that I have heard that has one, rides it on teh street and loves it. A friend of mine totalled his though, so that stinks. but the bike is a favorite for many people.
