I'm fairly new to track racing, and am looking into getting my own bike. My mechanic friend offered to sell me a 2008 Bianchi San Jose (49cm) for $500 tops. There's enough clearance for a 50-tooth chainring in the front (more than I'd ever need), and he's put on a flip-flop hub. However, I have never heard of anyone racing on a San Jose. I haven't ridden the Pista yet, but I've been racing with the rental Langsters at the track. If I'm looking for a bike primarily for velodrome use, should I consider the San Jose, or just buy the true track bike?
