    Fuji Track 1.1

    Hey guys,

    What are your thoughts on the Fuji Track 1.1?

    Good starting point? Good bike to grow into?

    My original plan was a Dolan Track Champion, but they're too much of a pain to get a hold of. How does the Fuji Track 1.1 measure up to it?

    Info:http://www.fujibikes.com/bike/details/track_11

    (I'd be buying it as a frameset)

    EDIT: I know we don't like proprietary seat posts but other than that...

    Are you in a rush to get a new bike? Just wait to get what you actually want. There's no need to settle, especially if they're aren't any time constraints.

    Would be nice to have a bike that fits before the season started.

    Oh yeah, you're bike doesn't fit. That's a problem.

    Here's what I'd do, get something cheap that fits for the time being, and hold out for what you actually want. If you don't like the bike you're on, it's gonna suck either way.

    What is the *absolute max* that you will spend on a new frame?

    $600~$700 preferred

    Absolute max, probably 800~900

    It's my first year racing, so I feel like I shouldn't invest a ton quite yet?

    The thing about this is that for most people, a decent aluminum frame will take them as far as they can go in track racing.

    I bought a Felt TK2 as a Cat 5 and took it to state championship podiums some years later.

    Buy it right or buy it twice - I don't think you need to look at this as a "starter bike." You can get a high-quality frame - any of the ones you've mentioned in your process qualify for this - and if you wind up sticking with it, you can buy some nicer wheels down the line.
    the hipster myth.

    i practice vagabondery.

    Yeah most of the frames I'm looking at fit that bill.

    I wish I could find a TK2 as a frameset :|

    EDIT: Score. Contacted Dolan directly, and they said they can do 376.67 shipped which comes out to 571.11 for the track champ. Seems like the best buy right now and it seems like a great bike to grow into.

    Nice!

    Problem solved.

    I've contacted Dolan directly before. They were very nice and responsive.

    Yeah they were super awesome about it.

    I thought it would be a pain to try and get a frame all the way from the UK, but they say it's actually pretty fast.
