Opinions? Fetish Cycles Track Frame
 
Recommended? For a beginner track cyclist (pure track, no street).

Feedback appreciated, thanks.

the geometry is pretty street-y. not to mention weird.
slack angles.
a 53cm frame w/ a 54 cm TT. then a jump to a 56 cm frame w/ 58 TT? WTF?

if you're just looking for cheap aluminum, then maybe the chucksbikes.com 2005 Tsunami frame might be good. no idea about the geometry though. or maybe spicer.

he has other sizes in the 2005 model for $285. w/ a steel fork.

someone has suggested that they're made by the same Taiwanese OEM supplier that makes the Jade frames as well.

Interesting... I did look into chuckbikes but for whatever reason, it doesn't "strike my fancy."

I am looking for a quality track bike that could be built up for less than $700.

seriously check out spicer. gene is awesome and he has quality "standard" track frames reasonably priced, in steel and aluminum.
