Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Neither would be allowed on a velodrome setup as they are.
My newest bike will.

So you have three bikes that essentially serve the same purpose? Why not bike up a road bike for a little diversity. Also, what was wrong with the Pista? It's a great track bike.

And really, those frames look pretty gnarly (in a bad way). Save your money and go for that Masi!!! HOT!

And the ride from the OP is terrible.

Clearly this frame is designed strictly for track, but I have yet to see one set up as a proper track bike, with track drops, track cranks, etc. Can anyone who is actually using this frame as it was intended (for track) post some pics? Or at least, if you have this frame and use it for around town or street use, are you happy with it or are you thinking of flipping it for a more practical frameset?
Looks like a a great bike to ride to Starbucks to me...

Why would the downtube make it uncomfortable?
