    Here is my whip. Probably a little much for a 60 yr old. It's a Fuji if you can't tell.

    Wow. I can't even...

    That's pretty much my dream build.

    Yup. It was a really nice night for it too, tons of fun.

    A few pics of my Recently acquired zeus:

    Attachment 314422
    Attachment 314423
    Attachment 314424

    (They're not tiny, just clickable)

    She's got Mavic Gel 280's, Zeus 2000 BB, Headset and drops, Campy crank (need to replace that if i ever find a zeus pista...) and cinelli pista bar/stem.

    She's a sweet ride, but also my first and only track bike, so I may be biased

    Looking better.

    Why are the axles on your front wheel so long? That's a hazard.

    Despite some initial concerns about the geometry, I'm getting very, very happy with this.

    I saw this bike at Kissena! I would introduced myself but I didn't want to come across as some creep from the internet.

    I really liked my Fuji Track Pro, but it was a touch too small. When a friend was selling his Planet X, I noticed the TT was about 1cm longer, and the geometry looked promising, so I swapped all my parts over. Quite fond of it. I think I will end up with a Dolan DF3 eventually, but for now this is suiting me.

    oh hai hello!

    Welp... I've decided to take the plunge and submit myself to some torture / humiliation / fun at Kissena once this thing is finished... Which will be soon enough. Exciting and terrifying at the same time. Wish me luck.

    They do look good. Stock fork has quite a bit of rake in comparison to other track models, but that's not the end of the world. Feels pretty good to ride.

    Here it is, finished, in "street" gearing.





    Can't wait to take this thing to Kissena.

    I've been continuing to dial in the fit. Here's how it is now. Feels SO much better than how I first had it.

    Edit - better picture:

    The langster pro is definitely a track, and not "street fixie" model, but yes, the large amount of rake in the stock fork has been noticed and discussed a few times here and in other forums.

    It doesn't seem to bother most current owners, including me. I might eventually look for something with a bit less rake.

    Can normal people ride on Kissena or do you need a track bike/ need to be in a competition? I just found out about it, I want to ride my road bike on the course sometime.

    Kissena is a public facility. You can ride on it any time, with whatever bike.
    However, if you want to race, you will need a track bike.
    And if you want to ride on it while people are training, then you should have a track bike - although a willingness to learn etiquette could suffice.
