    Has anyone ridden a Cinelli Gazzetta on a track?

    I need to replace my broken track pro soon and I think I'm going to go steel. Has anyone ever ridden one of these on the track or something comparable with columbus tubing? I'm pretty set on getting one but I want more input. Also, feel free to throw out some other recommendations for a steel frame with an $800 max

    Hi, Mikey. Do we know each other? (I raced DLV for a long time).

    Why steel? No one that I know races steel competitively. Aluminum is simply stiffer and lighter. Everyone who I know started on a steel frame later upgraded to Aluminum or Carbon.

    Carleton, Carleton... . I was beaten by a guy on a Cinelli Supercorsa Pista in the sprint rounds at masters nationals in 2011. It can be done!

    I'm on steel, and now that I'm getting stronger, I'm having flex issues. Skidmarks on chainstays isn't good.

    Get an entry level aluminum frame.

    I hold a largely romantic affection for steel. I think it makes for the best looking bikes. But I do race on a carbon bike.

    If you are really stick on a steel frame, I would consider a Bareknuckle over a Gazzetta.
