    You are going to hate life if you put track drops on that...seriously. It's going to be uncomfortable regardless, but I'd probably put some shallow-drop bullhorns on it. Pursuit frames need bullhorns.

    Edit: Also, that frame uses a quill stem, so the Velocitas are immediately out of the question unless you get a threadless adapter.

    Yeah i know, actually with drops, it's pretty comfortable, it doesn't hurt my back or neck or nothing feels numb. yeah i got some rb021 i might throw on. Ever since i rode my friends ciocc enemy pursuit, fell in love with pursuits. what would be considered a pursuit track legal setup ? Just getting started and looking more into it now. heard you can't use 650 c anymore unless you have both the front and rear 650c too.

    That frame is hot, but it looks hideous with risers. Please slap some pursuit bars on ASAP

    UCI restrictions would not affect him if he's not racing though.

    Read what he said "Ever since i rode my friends ciocc enemy pursuit, fell in love with pursuits. what would be considered a pursuit track legal setup ?" His statement is in the context of what is legal for racing.

    Jesus thats a nice bike. I wouldn't have it red white and blue though, simply because I'm an anarchist. But if you're into non self custom paint schemes I reckon it works for you. really sweet though. I wish i could find a nice low profile setup like that. Great find!

    It would be resale suicide if he sanded down and replaced those team USA colors ..... he dropped $800 for it
