Fancy Track Bike Shoot-Out

I've wanted to start a thread like this for a little while, and the DF4 vs Kimera thread got me thinking about it again.

Would anybody who has used one of the top-end track frames post a review of it? I know fit will make or break a bike, but assuming each bike has ideal stack/reach for you, what are the pros and cons of each one? I've heard some frames are flexy, some have seatpost or saddle slip issues, some have funky geometry, so I'd like to see if we can cull all this info down in one area.

This thread got derailed immediately. Let's try again.
