anyone ride one? man those are some amazing looking bikes...right now I'm thinking about getting my first brand new track frame..it won't be for a while, like a few months or so, but I"m just checking the options...(hence my thread on the mercians) but those vanillas look flawless...they're expensive, but man are they nice looking.
Which brings me to another point that's been rattling around in my brain...is anyone really paying the $2500 price tags I see listed for new nagasawa track bikes? are they worth it? I'm not being sarcastic with that question, I'm actually curious, so don't take it as a diss....it just seems that for $2500 I could get a custom made vanilla and then have a load of scratch left over....or for a good deal less than either I could pick up a cinelli olympic...I've ridden an olympic and they are NICE.
