TT bikes have a different geometry (seat tube and head tube angles) than road or track bikes. The seat tubes are more upright and the forks are more slack. It's a slightly different ride. But being that there is not fork, you can buy a standard road fork (I'm not sure if this will help the steering, though). Then you gotta ask, is it a 1" or 1 1/8" steerer?
This bike will take a good bit of work and/or money to get rolling. Looks like you need:
- Complete crankset
- Rear derailleur that matches the shifters and cassette
- Shifter cables
- Labor to tune install and tune it all
If you plan to make it a fixed gear, it will be difficult with the short vertical dropout.
This does not belong in the track forum. This thread belongs in ROAD or TIME TRIAL.
