    Cervelo P2 frame for track bike build?

    I found a really cheap '08 Cervelo P2 frame and fork on ebay earlier. I was wondering if it could be built as a track bike, and if so what is needed? Need help fast!

    P2 is a road bike right?


    i would imagine that the geometry is off for track riding...like bottom bracket height

    and the fact that it doesn't have track ends

    actually it does have track ends...it's a time trial frame


    you COULD do it but I wouldn't


    If you were to build it up properly w/ gears and stuff then I would recommend it but it isn't really the right frame for what you want to do

    if its cheap go for it, do whatever you want with it. it has short dropouts but it'll still work.

    Yea but the track ends are much shorter than a real track bike.

    dude, there is NO REASON whatsoever to not buy that frame and fork for 200$. What the hell is wrong with it? Even if you decide not to build it up, and have it sit in ur garage, buy it. Lol.

    I wouldn't post a deal like that here. Someone will snatch it up probably.

    Dude, you do realize that's an auction and not the actual price of the frame, right? Most likely it will get a lot more expensive...

    after the first auction or so, one typically realizes that ten minutes let alone ten hours is an eternity in the snipe fest that is ebay.
