For some reason, it hasn't posted my reply like three times. I'm going to try "quick reply" and see if it works. Anyone else having this problem?
What's the difference between a road bike and a track bike? I went to sheldonbrown and found a description, something about road bikes having a more "vertical" geometry. I tried looking up some road and track bikes online to compare, but they looked the same to me. It doesn't look like something I can tell just by looking at a frame on the wall. I didn't see track ends on the Viner frame (or any of the others, I looked) is there anything else I can look out for?
Also, I swear I read somewhere that I can use a regular freewheel hub with a fixed sprocket/track cog (like, from surly
.) But now I can't find where I read that, and I want to make sure before I order it.
I'm leaning towards the Viner frame, but I'm still trying to find info on the GlobalMaster (that sounds like such a cheap-sounding brand name though!)
