Do you think I would be better off just buying the frame and building it up? I really don't want to spend more than 1400.
you could sell the wheels and get some formular/cxp22s and some money left over. Since this was in the track forum I assumed it was going to be a track bike.
If you want something for winter training I suggest you get something substantially cheaper(iro, redline, other bianchis, lemond, soma, surly etc) or maybe the bianchi roger if you must have light... It has disk brakes. The ride will be better, it will be more robust, you can put brakes and fenders on more easily etc.
look in ss/fg for more info on fixed gear bikes to ride on the road.
