Show Off Your Track Bike Pics (retired)

The folks over at SSFG have a show your fixie thread but those are mostly converted road frames. Can we get a Sticky Thread where we can post our Track Bikes? Track bikes are hands down the sexiest of all bikes . . . let's post them up!

Looks like a fun bike for sure but I agree, it's not a bike to be ridden on the track.

here is my beauty. such a perfect fit. good for a small fella like myself.




the seatpost is temporary, replacing it with a silver thompson elite.

Since ridden on the track, the stem was brough up 2 inches, it was just a tad too low for me.

It's not hi-zoot. It's not fast. It's definetely not pretty.
I hate the geometry. I hate the looks. I hate the frame.

But I'm fast and that's all that matters. This bike took me to some good victories. It's a loaner from my coach, a Giant Bowery with upgraded components. Soon to be replaced with an Erba (NJS for the hipsters) steel frame that I'm getting through a trade

I just picked it up yesterday, it's an Erba pro-keirin frameset. The racer that had this used it as his "road bike" and drilled brake holes into it, which will be gone soon. Also, when me moved from Japan to Detroit, the bike wasn't packaged so great and the axle hit the downtube, making a ding.
New Paint, new decals and all of my track stuff is on its way. I want so bad to see that this badboy looks like with a Zipp disc.

I've been away for a few weeks, and leaving again today.
I managed though to take a few shots of the latest upgrade.

This is a little somethin' I finally finished putting together. Now I can add it to my collection of other bikes that are entirely too nice for me and get ridden entirely too infrequently. Our head wheelbuilder added his special touch when he built the rear for me; I can now see the allure of unlabeled deep section rims after seeing the front on the bike.


DW, it's John at Zipp. Are you going to be able to talk Nate into hitting Major Taylor?

That's a sharp bike, luckily, I saw it up close and personal at a Thursday night race at Major Taylor when DW showed up. Wish I could put that much $ into a track bike, but I get all of my stuff out of luck and favors.

An Australian built frame. Serious seat stays. Zeus Ti BB, cranks and seat post. Campy hubs. It's a great bike to ride.
