    PELOTON frame

    http://www.tracksupermarket.com/inde...roducts_id=703


    This looks decent to me, I love silver. worth the 650? or keep trolling the internetz for a better deal?

    example : http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/bik/2311288381.html
    But I think it's gone, no response form seller yet.

    Looks good! Can't tell if there are any dents or not though. I like the fillet brazing!

    oh dear lord the geometry is a nightmare, but the guy knows how to fillet braze.

    the guy should've also talked that customer out of an 83* or whatever seat tube... but i just tell people it's skid geometry. Thinking i need to start a crap geo but i don't care club.

    That seems very expensive for a lockupable bike.

    looks a bit rough (look at the rust) for $650 IMO.

    So many better non NJS frames out there in that price range. Those bikes are retired from the track for a reason. But, if you are just looking for a stamp and nothing else, go for it.

    It's not about a stamp, it's about buying a frame that's not mass produced in Taiwan and redistributed as 10 different brands. they are absolutely beautiful frames, and the size is just right for me.
    52-53cm. yes i noticed the rust and i am passing on this frame.

    "So many better non NJS frames out there in that price range" examples please. I want something lugged, with lugged forks. and tripple/double butted chro. i like more of the classic look, quality frame.

    That bike looks a little beat up for $650, seems like quite a bit for nice welds a pedigree.

    Talk to your local framebuilder, there's no reason to buy a thrashed ex-race bike.

    So, no brazed frames like the Peloton?
