It looks pretty good. It's your basic aluminum track frame. What events are you looking to ride it for? For mass-start type races, I think it's an excellent choice by looking at the minimal information. If you're looking to excel in sprint or time trial events, then I'd say look into something else a little more.

Thanks, Velo. I'll be using it for training/street riding in cleveland, OH.
After some more research, I'm a leaning more towards steel (esp considering the roads in town). Perhaps the carbon fork will help.
I have more shopping to do, I guess. Any suggestions for entry level track fun?

I have a Fort 125 Track, it's full ChroMo and is much fun. A bit twitchy, even with a road fork, but at 159 (about $200) I'm not complaining (see my post in the Pics thread at the top). I don't think they make the steel one anymore (it's not on their site www.fortframes.cz), and i'm not selling mine anytime soon, so you'll just have to search I'm affraid.
