    need a new fixie please help

    ok i am looking to finally replace my stolen fixie, i have got about 1,000 to spend but i would like to keep it under that if i can. i live in florida. so it is flat and boring lol. but i need the best fixed gear for the money. i am 6.2 so i need a bigger frame (56) ish and i would like to git a complete set up i just don't have the money to go from the ground up. now to the imported things what i plan to do with the thing. i need it light because i carry it in to places on my back and i love to go fast so a stiff frame helps. i would only ride about 50 miles max i have a road bike for the 100 miles and up. it needs to be fixed gear i don't need this flip flop stuff. and a front brake would be nice if anything it needs to be drilled for one so i can add it. and i would love a 52 tooth chainring on the crack because i have a lot of power in my legs. but that is not important. i would like to use it to go to work and it will always be indoors if i am not in it. its for getting around town and racing my friends. it does not have to be comfy but it needs to be fast. i know a true track bike is too stiff to ride on the road and there can be overlap with the crank arms and the front tire so idk what to get. thx so much for you help if you need to know more let me know and thx once more.


    note- i will put a poll up of the top 2 or 3 bike i get told if needs be so keep an eye out for that

    I'd say the Motobecane Team Track would be perfect, but it doesn't seem like they sell it anymore

    These wouldn't be a bad deal, they're kind of similar to the Motobecane Team Track. They also have a Leader complete for $950 on the website. Unknown Combat Complete Fixed Gear Bike | City Grounds Aventon Mataro Fixed Gear Track Bike EDIT: This is if you want aluminum frame/carbon fiber fork. If you want a list of a few good steel completes let me know.

    ^ i have the aventon complete mataro from CG and already have started swapping parts to get a better ride. in the end i should have just bought a used…. something better. langster pro's and fuji track pro which have the same aesthetic go for about what I'm into my bike for.

    I saw this in a local shop (Miami area) yesterday -- District S - Trek Bicycle

    Version I saw had drop bars and upgraded tires. Super light (carbon frame) -- looks pretty fast.

    What big advantage is a FTP or Langster Pro going to give you? Do you compete on the velodrome? In my case replacing my Surly Steamroller with a FTP would be a disadvantage being that I commute on the streets and track geo would just make me more uncomfortable.

    I have an old Fuji del Ray for a commuter and wanted to get more serious into biking so I wanted more track oriented bike to hopefully work my way to track. the only thing I meant was the CG complete came with parts that I had to sub out immediately because they effected the ride I felt (crankset, seat primarily and wheels soon). where as I got the impression the langster pro and Fuji pro competes came as a better overall build and I would have been able to ride comfortable a little longer and could have paced myself on the changes. I could be wrong. like I said I'm still pretty new to it
