probably rehashing some content, but i've been away from bike forums for a while.
anyway, i ride a lot of fixed miles per year, and i own a number of dedicated fixed gear bikes. the bikes i own now are all road geometry, steel and set-up for long rides. as background, generally i ride the first 1000 miles of the season fixed gear, and have racked up multiple century+ rides fixed, so i am no stranger to miles on the bike. typically ride over 2500 miles a year fixed in addition to a bunch of miles on a geared road bike.
anyway, i'm looking for a "fun" bike to put together this season. something to grab for 20 mile rides or so, fast rides. i often ride with the roadies and keep up just fine on the fixed gear bike, but something a little lighter and racier would suit certain rides better than the more rando set-up bikes i typically ride.
anyway, i know the vigorelli is billed as a track machine, but i've fallen for the looks, the notoriety of columbus airplane tubing (i had a colnago dream for a while, geared bike, same tubing which i loved and miss). i think it would be a good bike to add to my stable, but looking for feedback from folks who ride these on the road and can compare the ride and handling to other known bikes.
i have a pretty regular rotation of over 10 bikes, this would be just something fun to ride...
