    Gt Track bike?

    I'm on a spending spree it seems (with money I don't have none the less) I just found this GT track frame for something affordable. Can anyone ID its value or model?

    Its a pulse or kinesis. My freind payed $400 for his and that was a good deal. That is an awesome frame. Take it at $300, worth it.

    I'd ask for better pictures 1st. Also ask him to take a pic of the BB shell. That will confirm whether it's a pulse or gtb. If it's a pulse, it'll say Kinesis Aluminum on the bottom of it.

    It was implied the Kinesis was aluminum and given that this frame was cracked and welded I could only conclude that it was made of Steel, although if my logic is erroneous please do correct my fallacy.

    Related, but I can't help but to ask what's the difference between these GT track frames/ why are certain models (more specifically the pulse/ kinesis) desired aside from the triple triangle?

    What he ^ said, but they'd even be more alluring in Reynolds 631 or higher.

    Pulse was made by Kinesis which was a better Alu than the GTB. Pulse also came with a Easton alu fork. GTB came with a steel fork.

    Yes, you can weld aluminum. How else is aluminum tubing joined together for bike frames?

    Aluminum can be welded. It is more difficult to do so than it is to weld steel. If it's cracked, skip it though, others will turn up. And yes, triple triangles are sexy, I love mine and its fillet brazed 853

    Aluminum is so friggin hard to weld compared to steel. You can go from fine and dandy to too hot in a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a second and melt a hole in the tube set you spent 4 hours preparing.

    There's a professor here that can weld aluminum foil to aluminum foil. That's "majic".

    right. You can weld aluminum and for me to make a statement to the contrary made me wish gt35 were here to ream me for my carelessnes. Generally what I had hear was that once a alu frame was cracked it generally was done in. Which makes sense given that posters above said it's so difficult to work with.
