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)

Felt Tk3 2014 Reviews Please

I couldn't find many reviews for this bikes' components. I wondered if any of you would know what they are all about; rebranded or actual felt made parts? Are they any good?
Reviews on the frame would be nice as well.

Knowing its an entry level track build, is there some other frames/builds that are comparable in that price range (arround 1000$). i know there is the Fuji track but it's much more expensive, but is it worth the extra $$ ?

I have a riding buddy has one, is a nice bike for the money - are you thinking of it for track or tarck?

Shop around - you ought to be able to find for a lot less than $1k

i was going for tarck but not so much for street cred but for road use. was planning on piling the miles on it.
would the leader be a better option in your opinion?
