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)

Looking for a New Track bike

I'm planning on upgrading from my current fixie; which is a Volume cutter v5 to a newer track bike. I was thinking of a fuji track pro or a Leader 735. My budget is around $500 for just the frame, and maybe fork. Any suggestions on what I should get?
Cheers.

The OP is experiencing the tipicult "I need a new bike" urge. Its a powerful urge, but its a want - rather than a need. I had one just the other day: I need an ugly looking bike so I will feel comfortable leaving it around everywhere. And thus I created a need for what is actually a want. : \

I believe the 500 dollar budget part was for the frame, not the total price of the bike.

What would you like your new frame to do that your current one cannot?

I just feel like getting a new bike haha. My cutter was a gift to me for graduation and I have decided that I wanted to get a new one after I heard my roommate had like a $500 credit for a bike and decided to hop on it.

i love my ftp and hate leaders under 500. i would suggest an affinity lo pro or a clearance dolan, if you don't want to spend a little more and get something far nicer like a vigorelli or a felt tk3.
