It's an Alien frame. Changed the stem out to a 120 and the bars out to B125AA's to reflect how I got fitted on the Concept. Really loving how it rides vs. with a 90 Pearl/B123AA's. Better handling, accelerating feels more natural. This is my training bike / commuter, with the Concept as a racer. I'm entertaining the idea of racing it on the track with a wheelset swap (get some tubbies on there) a day or two at Alpenrose though...

Posted this in SSFG forum also but figured it couldn't hurt to post it here also. First year actually on the track, so it's not as nice as some of the bikes I've drooled over in this thread but it's a start!

I only have one pair of pedals, and they're on the road bike. Speedplay Zeros, in case you're wondering.

How are Javelins? I almost pulled one off Ebay before getting my Track Pro.

No complaints yet. You don't hear anything about Javelin (I guess because they're mostly focused on the Try-Athlete market), but they make a pretty awesome bike if you ask me. It's stiff, light and rides great. My race results definitely improved after I stepped up from my more flexy steel LeMond to the Vig, and while I've no doubt that a lot of that has to do with improved fitness, there's also no question that this bike's stiffness helps me accelerate and chase down breaks more easily.

It gets a lot of compliments, I think mostly because no one's ever actually seen another Javelin around.
