Kind of sacrilege they put their shop sticker on the downtube on such a collectible classic.... I hope the buyer's first modification is to take it off.

Yeah it is a poor choice on them I made sure to remove mine when I bought the Phil Wood frame from them. They also got the seatpost size wrong so I bought a seatpost in the correct size and had to sand it down. I still love the frame and glad I got it but just wish they had measured correctly so I could have taken my component choice in a different direction maybe.

Spotted on ebay, Velocity/Gran Compe tubular front wheel for $30, Surly cog for $10.
edit- shipping makes the wheel a little less of a deal, but still not bad.

Very nice frame! Curious where you plan to ride it. They say a track bike can't be ridden on the road.

If that's the case then why did they put hole in the fork for mounting a front brake?

I guess if you put a brake on then it is no longer a track bike.

Ugh. Great links, but I just waived bye to a bill. Did get 20% off competitive though. Thanks Broseph!

I've been eyeing that wind jacket for more than a week. So far, I've successfully convinced myself that a) I'm not fond of the color and b) I'm more of a vest kind of guy.

I hope they sell out, soon - I don't know if I can keep it up.

Looks like they raised the price 20 bucks. Should be easier to hold off now.
