I've been riding at the velodrome for the last few months using a hire bike (Hillbrick) and think it's time to finally get my own. Wondering if any of you have any experience or opinions on the following two bikes, which I can get for roughly the same price:
Fuji Track 1.0
I'm hoping not to have to replace any components, and I'm trying to get a test "ride" (probably only on a trainer) of them both, but not sure if that's going to be possible, so advice would be appreciated.
I started early this year on a 2011 TK3. The drivetrain is 3/32", so borrowing cogs or chainrings may be an issue. That's an easy fix, however. The wheelset weighs in at 6 pounds plus and the handlebars have a huge drop. Those are the only things I would have changed about mine. The ride was fine to this newbie, quick handling and responsive. I say would have because I went with a TK2 when I found one for a song.
