    What track frame do you like for $1000?

    Thinking of another project. At a price of $1000 or less which frames do you like? Thanks. Pics?

    at $1000 bucks (or a couple hundred more), you can find quite a few custom builders who do whatever you want.

    Cycles Marinoni in Montreal Quebec - www.marinoni.qc.ca - who has probably made more custom frames than anyone in N.Am over the past 30 years, will make you one for less than $1000, and 1000 Canadian at that. And full custom too. We just got a fleet of ten teens' rentals at out track (650c wheels, Zona tubes, 3 color) and they are VERY nice.

    Thanks. Which builders do you like? I had thought about a Tiemeyer but they're a little more than I want to spend.

    Which builders do *I* like? Hmmm just about all the ones that do "perfectionist" work. There are lots of them; take your pic. It more comes down to what style, what philosophy you like and then there's the wait factor and dollars to consider.

    Lucky u... I have one... but a road one... the best machine I ever had so far today...I even like it better than a colnago master I sold because I never got used to it (those things happens) but with the Ridley a few days and thats it... like a glove.. I know some people that goes to London's canada velodrome and use ridley track bikes and they are very very very pleased with them... how big are u anyways?
