If you read the old posts, many track sprinters take the geometry very seriously.
Such as headtube angle, fork offset and, BB drop.
Also, if you use Cervelo T4, you will have hard time fitting big chainrings, crankarm, and some wheels.
Cervelo T4 is known to have clearance issues.

To add on about the stiffness on the track frames
Most of carbon track frames are stiffer than carbon road frame.
So if you are not coming from BMX, you do not have to worry about the stiffness.

btw not all BT are stiffer than Look R96
according to my friend Look R96 is stiffer than BT Blade and Ultra
Finally Iíll buy the frame next week, but Iím still in doubt and still donít know 100% which one is better.

For sprint, team sprint and kilo which one would be your pick?
T4 or BMC trackmachine 01?

BMC is a really nice bike but there is no feedback. Kung used it for individual and team pursuit but there are no more pro riders using it
