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)

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.

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

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
