Post your pictures here. Doesn't have to be your bike either.....maybe one you have seen and admire.

Steel and Aluminum bikes don't be bashful either.

That is absolutely beautiful.

The front looks like a Aluminum Shamal tubular rim. I want to say that Rolf wheel too.

Didn't think so, that'd make you what, 95 years old?

Anyway, back to the bikes...

If you want the specs, i've got it all taken apart right now, I can figure out all the parts (don;t have them memorized) and let you know how to do it. Costs about 5 bucks worth of hardware and about half an hour of your time if i remember correctly. thanks for the compliments.

Best track frame. Period.

Aussie and Dutch national teams, plus a bunch of others with various frame stickers.

My mate's dad makes 'em.

Here's two of me. Sorry for the lighting...the track is indoors which can make picture taking difficult. The second one I think is from leading a miss and out.

It's my only "road bike" too. I ride to the track, loosen the brake cable, ride, readjust cable tension, and ride home. Roger's been cool with my set up.

I'm currently looking for a dedicated track bike so I don't have to keep switching set ups and gears around depending what I'm doing.
