low budget first track bike thanks to craigslist, ebay, and parts laying around the garage, A larger chain ring is on the way but for now it's 42x13
[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] ride carbon it's "organic" !
boom is right. those cane creeks are viscious. they set off the bike like a balsamic reduction sets off a filet mignon.
I am in love with that S-Works.
That BLUE is looking tasty.
heres mine. i bought this last week i havent ridden in 11 years. the guy told me he had it built it italy he's been riding track for 30 years and moving and had to downsize. i guess it says track **** in italian slang on it. its got a bunch of miche **** its a little modern for me my old bike was from the 70's with vintage dura ace stuff. i was used to a 49/16 but im 32 and fat so i figure the 46/17 will be ok. i probably wont be able to ride it around the block much less a velodrome. It has soem nice bars and one of those black modolo stems and ovaliezed tubing on the downtube. I wish the forks were tighter and i had some doublestrap metal toeclips but ill live. i have since dropped the bars and seat to suit my inseam. i have been out of this scene for along time and i went to the ss/fg site and whats up with that.... i raced alittle and was a messenger in D.C. NYC and Boston. you got some nice rides in this thread i cant speak for the other one. [IMG][/IMG]
I've done LOTS of housekeeping in this thread.
Let's keep the bikes legal for racing on the velodrome, otherwise the posts are subject to being deleted.

My current racing setup
well, here it is. i'll be spending the next couple of days gluing tires and cutting a couple lengths of chain for the season, but for the most part, it's a finished bike.
