a lot of great bikes in here.

i used to ride at encino 20 years ago when i was a jr. i finally took a refresher beginner's class last summer and was hooked enough to start building a bike.
my giant omnium is almost complete....just need to get the BB/cranks installed this weekend and the fork cut and i'm done. it was a budget build using mostly ebay just to see if i will actually start riding. kinda hard with 2 small kids!

anyway, as soon as i can find a place to host pics, i'll post some.

My new track frame for the 2011 season, parts off of my Masi Speciale Sprint. Those are my training clinchers, the race wheels with tubulars are hanging in the garage.

Though still missing its head badge and a Unicanitor saddle, my 3rd bike is pretty much done. It's a ca. '69/'70 Masi Special.

Thank you. They're Cinelli handlebars, I just don't know which model. The model number is now taped over. Maybe you or someone here knows based on its shape.

Might be more bike than I'll ever need, but it was too good of deal to pass up. Ignore the pedals, still looking for a set of clipless pedals and shoes.

Is the track open to public for training when it's not in use?

I'm not exactly sure. You'd have to check the website to verify.

Not much. Road biked with friends for a few years, made the switch to fixed about a year ago.
Played around at the local velodrome and really liked it, signed up for a class
