Alright, I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on a bike for the velodrome, but I have a few questions.
1) How important is geometry for a beginner?
We use Binachi Pista's which have a Low bottom bracket drop (58mm) and they work just fine.
B) Would you sacrifice geometry for better components?
I'm noticing That the beginner level track bikes from specialized, trek, felt, etc have their own components (cranks and what not). I'd assume they must be good enough for 90% of the people riding them... yes? What I'm trying to ask is there any real reason for a beginner to purchase a bike with Dura-ace components just because a DA?
The reason I ask this I'm thinking about buying a used frame (pista most likely) and building it up to save some $ initially. But it looks like the fuji's, felts and the like have higher bottom brackets so I'm wondering which bike to get.
I have no idea if that made any sense to you all, but thanks for the help!
