    Rocky Mountain Boroughs

    Sorry to bug you track guys, I know you're probably sick of dealing with SSFGers, but I've got a question I think you guys would be better suited to answer.

    I've been riding fixed for a while now and currently have a Steamroller and now that I've graduated college and now have a local velodrome to call me own, I'd like to pick up a new ride exclusively for track racing. Currently I'm working at a local bike shop (that is until I make it big as an internationally renowned photographer) so I have access to employee pricing and a variety of manufacturers. I'd like to pick up a bike complete for the sake of getting out to the clinics sooner than later.

    I'm hoping the Rocky Mountain Boroughs would make a great first choice but I was hoping to get input from you guys on whether or not there really is a better option in the "serious, entry-level track-only" bike division. Disregarding employee pricing it'd come in around $950 CDN/American.

    Our shop also has access to Raleigh, Cannondale, Bianchi and Lemond track bicycles.

    You may think they're played but Pistas are awesome entry level track bikes. With some upgrades they're amazing for how much they are.

    I, myself, ride a Raleigh Rush Hour on the track and it does the job, but I sometimes feel like a Pista or a bike with similar geometry would be a little better suited.

    thanks for replying!

    actually, i ended up talking to our cannondale rep and he was able to swing me a capo at a special price.

    it's expected to arrive after the memorial day holiday as well as the new deda pista bars and dura ace cog i qbp'd. hopefully i can find time during the day to put it together and catch the tuesday night clinic.
