Schwinn Sprint (Reynolds 853, track geometry, $1,000)

Here's an option for entry level track bikes. I'm not sure how long it's been available. I just noticed it.

The Schwinn Sprint is made of Reynolds 853 for those into steel. It has decent entry level components. It's a good option for those looking for a real track geometry*. It's also decked out with brakes for street use.

MSRP is $1000, but Performance has them for $850 with brakes and $800 without.

Not bad.


*Bikes with track geometry will handle better on the banks of the velodrome at higher speeds.

I'm pretty sure it's new to the US for 2010 (maybe 2009). I saw it on the European website around a year ago. It's been mentioned here on the forums sparingly over the last year.
