I've been riding fixed for a couple years on a Pake. Initially, my plan was to get good parts and switch out my frame after. Now, I am thinking otherwise. The frame is the most important part of bike, obviously. I want a classic, steel, lugged frame.
I work at Pita Pit on the east side. Not NEARLY as crazy as downtown, most the time, I am just riding through neighborhoods (25-40 miles per shift). But the chances of getting nailed by a car are slim.
This bike will be both my work bike/luxury bike.
What should I go with? I know NJS frames have lots of toe-overlap but I feel its something I could get used to... Is a Panasonic frame un****withable like a Pake is? At first I was looking at Pista Concepts but.. Aluminum.. that's pretty ****ing risky.
Also, my Pake is 53cm and I feel like it would be PERFECT at 54cm. And I know classic, steel track frames are measured differently.. so...
Its still a long time coming, just trying to come up with a game plan here.
