    Not to mention the new rotor/srm pairing.

    I've just started putting some parts together for my new black track frame and just got a Dura ace BB as I needed a new one for my existing frame. Might be a Dura ace BB on the market soon though. Those Rotor cranks would sure look nice on the frame!

    Peztech are incorrect with the BT photo. It isn't the Stealth, but the Edge which has been out a few years already...

    According to the BT website (though it doesn't look well maintained) the Stealth model with the curved tubes still remains in the line up.

    You are right.

    Also, why is the BT website so uninformative? There are NO product specs whatsoever. The first thing a rider does when he/she's considering a bike is to look at sizes and angles. Especially for a bike of this caliber and price.

    I think we are seeing a lot of new track bikes on the market recently because if I am not mistaken, the UCI will only allow bikes for the Olympics that are available commercially to the general public, and no longer top secret stealth projects that are bespoke one-offs.

    If correct, this should make for an interesting year in regards to product development for track racing.

    I've heard of that rule. So, do you know if the British will be able to race their super bikes or the German's their FES bikes?

    That rule has existed for a while now, but recently the UCI has stated they are going to enforce it more. The same rule exists on the road. I know there are somethings that are availible in catalogs and things, but not actually made until ordered.

    Agreed. Guess they feel they can rely on reputation alone? The BT site has always omitted information and gives an unprofessional feel due to its unfinished appearance...
