Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Fuji track pro 2010 weight?

Anyone been able to find out the weight of this year's bike?

It is pretty bad ass.

You have to cut down the seat tube yourself

I seriously doubt it weighs around 36 lbs

Probably around 15-16, depending on how much those wheels weigh.

Also that seat post looks just about right for me.

I really like the completely removable dropouts, Van Dessel did the same on their Drag Strip Courage.

I am just worried about the fork not being drilled for a brake.

People drilled the old fuji pro's and pista concepts themselves, you think this one is drill-able too?

It's more than likely got an aluminum tube for the fork, so drill away.

Here is a photo I found of the top of the fork (2009, which is the same as the 2010). The old fuji had a flat area where the hole would be.

(sorry for the link to the flicker page, it was refusing to copy the image location!)
What's the professional consensus?

I have never seen a seat clamp of that design. I have seen quite a few bikes with the aero seat tube that extends upwards and acts as the seat post as well, but none designed well like this that allow for a fair amount of adjustment still. I see promise in that alone, although the whole bike looks quite nice, especially if it's in the 15 something pounds range.
