I've got road fixie bikes taking over all empty space in my house, but I have recently developed a taste for the track. I'd like to build up the nicest reasonable track bike that I can. I tend to devote a disproportionate portion of my income to bike purchases, and would be willing to put up to 1000-1200 or so into the frame and fork, but I don't need anything too fancy. I'm 6'1, 210#, ride pretty hard, and don't want my bike to break anytime soon.
Any advice on a great frame (new or used) to build up? How about custom builders? thanks! (and I'm sorry that I didn't find the answers that I'm looking for with the search button!)
