    Iro

    Hey I'm looking to buy an entry level track bike... I'm looking in to the Windsor "The Hour" and the IRO Mark V... I've been hearing about "snappy" track geometry, I REALLY want to expirence this type of bike.

    Does either of these bikes have this feel that everyone is talking about??
    Sorry i'm a noob
    Thanks
    Nick

    The IRO is the better bet here as its a small company, run by passionate cyclists and they stand behind their products.

    That said, if you want to get a track bike but don't know what you're looking for, go to your local velodrome. Nearly all have beginners classes and rental bikes. You can try it out, get a sense of what kind of bike you need.

    If you just want a track bike for street riding, then the Singlespeed/Fixed gear forum has a ton of information about entry level track bikes.
