Wow, the nicest track bike ever.

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)

Wow, the nicest track bike ever.

Well, the bike in the back actually appears to be a track bike, so it seems to be set up fine. Which is why I was confused; having read the title, it took me a while to figure out this thread was about that green thingy.

It doesnt look like the "track" ends have very much for/aft adjustment. It could just be my vision.

Ok, lets just assume he was talking about the blue bike but couldn't get close enough to really move the gaudy green bike out of the way. Either way, lots better to be had for $1400.

from the site:


he is talking about the green thingy unfortunately. (He did not disclose the price of the actual bike lurking in that photo so it is unfair to say what it's worth.)

edit to mention that the Tonic Fab web site is so wannabe-artsy that the horrible design made me leave the site. Who uses extraordinarily light green on white???

ONCE YOU GO TARK YOU NEVER GO BARK.

Go away downhill mountain bikers, don't you have some mountain dew to chug or something? Maybe some halo to play?
