Updated, with more appropriate track gearing and my fancy track wheels.

My sprinter bike. It has 84.4 and 90 gears. It's meant only for training. On the track and on the road as well (that's why there's a front brake with a clamp for easy removal).




My "stamina training" bike. Has wider bars, clinchers, road saddle and so on. Also the frame is an entry-level one. The gear is 72 inches. This one is used for long distance training and some (although rare) commuting.


Still need a beater fixed gear.

This is my 'going to the shop' bike. Williams inch pitch ring, Prior hubs, steel bar and stem, Stronglight cottered cranks. Fun to ride.

Love the "going to the shop" bike!! Though I must admit I think I'd personally put a foot retention system on there (or a brake).

What hubs are they? Very fancy lookin'....

Also, I assume you only go to the shops for a pack of gum or something? No racks or baskets?!?!

Hi Wotan,

Milk, bread, etc. in a shopping bag can be cradled on the up-turned bars. The hubs are 'Prior' - the flanges are aluminium rivetted to the steel centres - very cool - very retro. Brakes are completely unecessary and without toe clips I can wear my workboots ( I don't go fast enough to get a whack in the back of the leg by the pedal if my foot slips off.)

Here's another great Aussie Hillman track bike built in 1984 . It has SR cranks, Sunshine hubs and other Sugino stuff. Hillman have been around for many years and have won world championships.

I'm glad you guys have gone to neutral white decals.

Glad you like them. It's been a pretty positive response so far.

Here's a pic of the front hub on another bike before I polished it up.




Haha, yeah I had the i pwn nOObs sticker lying around and i thought it would blend in with the paintjob on this bike perfectly.

The rear wheel is very close to the seat tube but its not rubbing, the cut-out actually has an indent so if i wanted I could have the wheel a little bit inside of the seat-tube. I hope the axel doesn't slip.

This is my dad and my race machine. Custom built Naked (formerly Forte Bikes) from just off the coast of Vancouver Island. Built by Sam Whittingham, current HPV record holder for both 1hour and 200m speed records.



Unfortunately it was involved in a crash at Track nationals, and is receiving treatment for the injuries right now.

Naked looks great. I bet it's strong and stiff. How did it handle the crash - compared to you?

I was vaulted off the bike almost onto my feet (feet first on 45 degree wooden track doesn't equate to a lack of injuries). Unfortunately the force brought the bars around quickly, and into the top tube, leaving a rather major dent. Fortunately it isn't structurally significant, and can be repaired.

Nice, Gitane made the first aero bike back in the early 80's I think, that looks a lot like it. One day I should try TIG'ing some crazy bullhorns directly to the steertube through a hole in the head tube...
