    2009 fuji track pro/ post your pictures!!!

    So I was thinking about getting a new bike for the past year now.. I had 2 leader track bikes as well as a 2010 allez elite and I just didnt like them. I like riding track bikes and I tried the whole road bike thing and that didnt work out to well. So as a winter project I thoughts Id put a deposit down on a 2009 FTP and up grade it.... Not of alot of kids seem to have this bike and I just wanted some in put and thoughts. I plan on a new saddle, stem bars, and wheel build during next month. But here is my baby So stoked.

    What do you guys think? post your pictures of 2009+ fuji track pro.

    Have you cut down the seat tube to your height yet?

    I hope that is sarcasm, because it looks like he hasn't gotten around to chopping the seat tube down yet.

    I think track bikes are supposed to have that insane saddle to handlebar drop.

    Most track racers actually don't run THAT aggressive of a saddle-bar drop. I've been to the velodrome in Dallas when there were olympians traning and they didn't have their bikes setup that aggressively. They do have a bit of saddle to bar drop, but nothing like what is pictured on that first FTP. That all black one is tits, tho
