Hello to all,
I bought a used Motobecane Messenger frame last year and have been using it as a commuter with borrowed parts from other bikes I have. Having just graduated and possessing less money than I did when I was an undergrad, I'm pondering the most economic way to get into track cycling. Because the Messenger frame has track dropouts, I was wondering if building it up with inexpensive track components is an acceptable way to start. I know it's not the ideal frame to race on the track (cheap, drilled for brakes, etc.) and I am unaware of any stipulations of frames/bikes that can or cannot be raced on a velodrome. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!
