Favorite Aluminum Track bike for street?

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'm fond of most of the Track Pro/Sonik/Leader style frames with the oversized, stiff tubing. Just about every company producing road bikes has a track bike with a frame like this.

I'm always afraid I'm going to dent my Leader by locking it up though. If you're rough with locking you might prefer steel. Aluminum is a good excuse to use a top tube pad.
