    Tommaso Augusta track bike?

    Is the tommaso augusta track bike any good? i found a 2008 tommaso augusto on a website for only $400 bucks and it retails for $1000.

    are the components bad?

    is it a badly built frame?

    how would it compare to a pista??

    If the price is legit, it sounds like a damned good deal to me.

    Pretty lame for a rack. But definitely a steal for $400
    I got random track parts for sale. 08 Dura Ace NIB comps for CHEAP!

    I asked a few weeks ago...
    thoughts on Tommaso Augusta?

    geometry is fairly close to a Bianchi Pista, which is intriguing. I'm close to pulling the trigger, just so I can check it out. and one more bike never hurts anything. a few things in the specs on the site seem a bit iffy and don't jive with what's pictured...

    but for the price and the specs, it's hard to beat.

    The new Tommaso Augusta track bike reflects the soul of the street, but also has the options available to make it one of the most efficient commuters on the market . With a dual-sprocketed hub, the Augusta can be a fixed gear demon in the morning – and then by flipping around the rear wheel - a free-wheel commuter after lunch.

    haha mega lulz

    Wow it functions both as a demon and a commuter? Consider me sold!

    No really, it seems like a nice bike. If this was a yea ago I would have taken it over the Sputnik I purchased.

    MSRP always lies, just look at nashbar, but regardless 400 isnt a bad deal.
