    Every response will begin with either:

    "If you wanted your damn ball why did you let it fly over the fence into my yard. I'm adding to to my collection."

    or

    "Get off my god-dammed lawn you lazy good for nothing hippies. Go play your goddammmed X-Station or whatever it is you do."

    Looks like your bike could clear some Omniums with the second dimple.

    I would like to report that a 52cm FTP w/ uncut seat mast and seat clamp weigh 5 lbs 1/8 oz.

    I'm a little less than enthused at that number. I was expecting it to be a lower than that...

    Flip side is UCI track build weight limits won't be a problem in these builds....

    My Reynolds 853 frame + Thomson post weigh less than that. I don't think cutting the seat mast to the right height will drop off 0.5 lbs.

    I'm not really a weight weenie (that's a slippery slope), but I was definitely expecting an aluminum frame to be lighter than my steel frame.

    And, for the record, I don't think the FTP is a very attractive frame in pictures, but it looks pretty great in real life. I thought that about the previous version of the FTP as well. Heck, I even thought that about Omnium cranks 'til I saw them in real life.

    it is heavy. that's for sure. but most of it is the dropouts, which are just ****ing ridiculous. and it's stiff.


    not that i've ridden mine yet, but i'm confident it will be the stiffest bike i've ever ridden including my cannondale caad4.

    ALSO: i just bought an SLR and some LOOKalike wellgoknock KeOff pedals.

    this will be my fourth fixed gear in a little more than four years

    The FTP was designed and built as a velodrome racer only, and there are a few things that are much more important on the track than weight. After stiffness and durability are covered, weight is probably important. But ask any track racer and they will take a boat anchor with zero flex over a light weight but flexable ride. Since there are no hills to climb on the track weight isnt a huge concern.

    I just realized something; the fuji track pro's integrated seatpost will not let me use it with my trico iron case for travel.... that integrated seatpost as awesome as it looks and stiffness, really blows as far as practicality goes....

    Yeah, I had to get a custom travel case made for my Tiemeyer for the same reason.
