Fuji Track Pro vs Van Dessel Drag Strip Courage, looking for opinions.
After taking some Velodrome classes and doing some 'new rider' training sessions I have decided to get a bike dedicated soley for track use. To make things a bit easier, swifter, and somewhat cheaper (I dont have hook-ups at a LBS) Ive decided I think I will just go with a Complete instead of parting a bike together from scratch.
So far Ive narrowed my list down to the Fuji Track Pro and Van Dessel Drag Strip Courage. I did have the Jamis Sonik on my list, but Ive scoured google and called all my LBS's and theyre out of Jamis Soniks, so thats off the list.
I can get the Fuji Track Pro (stock) for around $750ish after seeing what they go for on eBay and craigslist. While I can get the Drag Strip Courage (w/ Volos Tubulars) in my size for $950 (which is nearly half of MSRP). Both bikes have comparable components, while the DSG is a bit more unheard of, the FTP is $200 cheaper.
Honestly, I just dont know which way to go. Would the quality of the DSG's frame be that much better than the FTP? Am I paying extra just for non-conformism? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
