I've been attracted to this bike for some time due to its low price and mysterious allure (chrome??). I took one for a test ride this past weekend, but I have never ridden any other track bike before, so I really don't know if this thing is a real track bike, a flashy street-fix, or both. I'm thinking of trying some track racing next spring, and I'm wondering if this bike would be suitable for a beginner. Any satisfied (or unsatisfied) users out there? I would be interested in your feedback.
