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)

i usually see track bikes described as responsive...but then i also read where the steeper head angles are supposed to make them more stable at track speeds...which i would not assume to be responsive...
maybe it's the short wheelbase that does it...
i think i read from a reliable source that slacker head angles actually steer quicker.

It was an even trade for the frame. I just kept the Suntour Superbe Pro BB and put on my Campy BB on this bike.

Uh, yes it does. C-Record has a similar body style to the current model but instead of saying "Record" on the arms it just has the Campagnolo crest.
