I was thinking an SLR saddle would be a better fit for the build. Stem is fine.

This is how it started:



And this is how it sits now:



It's not done yet, still need to get the front brake on and make a few adjustments. I finished setting it up today and rode it around, and the chain needs to be tighter, the seat needs to be a couple inches higher, and the bar stem needs to be tightened because the handlebars were moving around a little bit.

Sure looks like a GT. Don't know if they sold an over-the-counter track bike but they did supply the US Olympic team among others...

GT made two off the shelf track bikes, the pulse and GTB.

the triple triangle design with the seatstays bisecting the top tube has been used by many many other manufacturers.

i don't think the olympic team ever used titanium bikes, so i don't think you're right at all. a lot of titanium bikes are custom made so that only makes it less likely that you're right.

My Trek 560 fixed gear. Weinmann DP18's on 700x23 tires, Shimano 105 crank running 42/16. Just added the nashbar bullhorns a few days ago, but I still need to put on the bullhorn brake levers. Anyways, I'm loving it so far

Still a mystery

Come on... I was expecting better than "it looks like a GT" GT's all had a tube-end hanging out of the back of their triple-triangle. (look at any GT) I wondered if it was a lost prototype for GT, but it's not even a possibility. Again: any Ideas? The dropouts are crazy-thick, if that helps.

I've since adjusted the seat/bar angles (both were tilted up slightly) and dropped the seat a few mm + its got a saddle pack, water bottle holder and cats eyes lights on the front and back

(suburbs)

also, I am 6'4 and YES I realize the frame is massive
