I've been looking at the Origin8 Del Pasado, and I've been thinking about buying it but the brazed-ons look pretty obsene . Would painting a new frame be a bad idea if I get it? And also other suggestions for cheap (monetarily speaking) track frames would be greatly appreciated.
bikeisland.com sells most of the bikesdirect.com bikes as framesets otherwise ebay is a good source. i rode a VISP (generic Leader) for awhile and liked it, those can be had on ebay for around $220 shipped. just type track fame or track frameset into the ebay search field.
