Here is my bike - obviously not done. I have not ridden it yet. It already has 21mm Evo CX tires. It will get pedals + fitted and I will take it to the track in January or February. I bought the Moto team track and put on new wheels, new seatpost and saddle. Stem is stock Deda. Handlebars are cheap $40 Profile T2 wing bar. The aerobars are single piece Profile CSX carbon. My biggest concern is not being able to move my handlebars any wider. May need a different base bar...

Wow, that is a very rare frame. I've never seen another Zullo track.

yeah they are made by one guy in italy. if you look up the frames they are really nice quality, though there isnt anything rewally online abot them. its made with columbus steel and campagnolo dropouts.some people rode them to championships in the 90's so they have that going for them.

Just posted this in the SS/FG board but I think it's safe to put it in here as well.

Why bother spending all that money for a heavy Aerospoke, and then get plain black when they come in all those garish colors and patterns? I mean, if I were to build Tarck bike, it would would be totally over the top.

I picked up the aerospoke used for $50 , That is the only reason I bought it.

I thought that because this is the 'Track Racing' forum this thread would be of photos of track bikes that actually get ridden at a velodrome. My mistake. Carry on.

I ride mine on the velodrome whenever I can get a lift to London. Sorry if it doesn't fit your perception of what a modern track bike should be.

Well thank you! Appreciate you like my bike!

It was my birthday present last year and I took a lot of time bringing all the parts together.

Pic was taken in the little cycling-pic-studio I have with my good friend George.

Guamie, FYI, this is the thread for race bikes. You might want to consider posting in the Single Speed / Fixed Gear Photo Thread.


...but technically, you bike *is* track legal for time trials
