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).

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!

Get an entry level aluminum frame.

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