They are so I can tow my teammates along during the leadout train!

Choo-choo muthaf*kka!!






They are the best dropouts he has. Actually, that's my only complaint about the bike (which really isn't a complaint, more of a wish). I want Ti dropouts like my Tiemeyer.

Is that like a -17 130mm stem on a 100mm head tube?

Yes. That's aggressive

Nice! The BA was the first frame I truly lusted over when I first got serious about track racing in my teens.

Done. It looks perfect. Thanks for telling me how to do it. I know it's not a major thing but it never occurred to me to do it.

I never liked the red stripe of the 3T stem, especially when nothing else on my bike was red.



Now it's plain black.

I really want to do my Scatto bars, but I heard it takes several hours to do so.

This is my first track bike, i bought it second hand 8 months ago from a guy that had used it for commuting.
Inexa frame with velocity rims and hubs.
I put a set of ominium cranks as i had them sitting around (don't ask)
and since the photo have got a set of pro carbon bars and Specialized romin seat (in black )


Its been a big learning curve and I'm still running a really easy training gear 48x16.

I had my first ride on boards last week and that was a massive rush.
i'm looking to start racing in the next couple of weeks.

Hi, Muddlfuc. Welcome to the sport and to bikeforums!

I've never heard of Inexa. It looks really nice. Google doesn't return much info on Inexa. I see photos of Inexa bikes and talk of them, but no company website. Are they a small AUS outfit?

Another Aussie. Welcome!

Inexa was a Aus company in the mid to late 2000's - importing an rebadging a range of frames and parts...

They weren't a big company. Not sure if related, but there was a recall of their carbon road forks around the same time as they disappeared.

Cheers for the warm welcome
Yer they WERE a company that rebadged and sold bikes in melb, not sure of the quality as its the only track bike i have ridden, though it feels stiff, and looks pretty from a distance, just don't get too close as it looks like its had a hard life.

Using a nice camera and lens:


Next to a Medium (56TT) LOOK 496:

Note the final setup with setback post (as per the original spec) and a 140mm -12 degree stem.

Village idiot for scale
