    Wanna buy a Hand-Made track frame

    I sold my bianchi pista.
    Now I plan to have one hand-made track frame,and my budget is around usd500-1000
    I have checked the GeekHouse frame,what do you guys think about this?
    I would like to know your suggestion on other brand as well.

    thanks

    Marinoni Pista. MSRP is $695, and you have custom options for an extra $150.

    I would honestly be very surprised if you could find a comparable bike at that price. I was considering getting one myself, but decided to save my pennies for a surly cross-check frame instead (Toronto weather is a *****).

    if he was looking for the "actual track", he probably wouldn't be considering spending $700 on a steel frame.

    a few, and they don't have to be a track bike.

    Blog called cycloculture ran a piece about a frame maker named Allan Wanta. Mentioned something about $850 for custom frames, which fits the budget you mentioned. No affiliation or any idea if he's any good.

    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.
