I'm in the market for a new bike, and I want something very different from my current bikes, so I figure a track bike is a good option.
I'm posting this here becuase I'm don't intend to race track with it or anything, just fart around town and ride when it's rainy. Call me a poser/posuer/prozeur/poughzeur/prohzeughere whatever, but I want a track bike. As a side note, I also like track geometry.
Anyway, I have a budget of ~$1,200. I'm definitely not into the idea of brakeless, so I'd like a front brake (not rear). I know you guys HATE Langsters, but there's one down at my LBS. It's not a current model (I don't think, at least), maybe last year. Not in the Specialized catolouge (SP?) or on their website. It's little over a grand, and has a front brake, with the lever mounted on where one would normally put a bar plug. I test rode it, and it felt pretty good. Sharp handling, but held it's line well. What says you, SSFG?
Any other suggestions?
