Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Looks as though he didn't butcher it so it can be turned back into a road bike.

Looks fine to me- the dropouts are short, but they're close enough to track ends that is proably track legal (a lot of tracks don't allow 'conversions' with vertical or classic horizontal dropouts). The Velocity rims are the only part that seem out of place- they're a little on the heavy side, but I guess the front MSW says he intended them for street use.

For those who said it was a track bike, a true track bike wouldn't have a deraileur hanger.

Or a bottle cage boss, or cable routing, or a FD braze-on.

Didn't say it was a track bikes, just that they make a track P3, so it's not like it's that "out there"

Taylor Phinney rode a Felt DA stripped down like that for the win while the TK1 was still in development. I'd hotlink the picture but it was taken down I guess, probably due to hotlinking.

True. The frame is not track specific. But tt bikes are often converted to track. I guess I'm just giving the seller the benefit of the doubt.

It's a regular 700c wheel. Might look different to you because of the mismatched wheelset, but they're the same.

After a quick look-see...Cervelo has horizontal dropouts on all its TT bikes so you can move your tire closer to the seat tube. The P3 track frame has the horizontal dropouts too, but no derailleur hanger.

My question would be about rear spacing. Aren't DA track hubs spaced 120 and the bike's rear spacing 130? Did he wrench down on his axle nuts to bring the seat/chain stays in or are there spacers?

I hope he put more spacers on the hub b/c clamping down a non-steel frame like that could be disasterous. On steel frames, though, I have cold-set the drop outs.

Also, I think the P3 track has the same geometry as that bike, so it's really not that big of a deal. I bet most tracks would let you ride it. Not that he's probably riding on the track considering his pedals and wheels...

Even if that bike NEVER sees the track and just cruises around the town, it's fine. There is nothing wrong w/ that. ppl need to quit hating.
