Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

It's also not drilled for a rear brake. Good sign it's a bonafide track racing frame.
Don't underestimate bike companies. Riders have to ride what they are given (for the most part).

Also, when they asked the frame builder (in Asia) to make one with track ends, they could easily say, "Don't drill out the seat stay bridge.". That's easier than setting up a new jig and producing a new fork.

Pursuit/TT bikes are supposed to have slack headtubes though.

This was back before the UCI (the cycling world's governing body) got all strict about bike design.

Whoever has this bike installed deep drops for lulz.
Ahh ok, it makes sense with the bullhorns, I just didn't understand how one would actually use those drops.

I suspect it's a "stayer" bike for motor pacing.

Nice CK headset. For some reason, all of a sudden I want to get real high.

I feel like there's some subliminal messages being sent.

I really want a Chris King headset now.
