This frame and fork are very early circle A units given to me by a friend. This was his road bike but all I wanted was a circle track bike so I did my best to do so without hacking away at this frame. Someday I will order up the real thing from the boys in Providence but for the time being I am very very happy with how she looks and rides. Very Fast. Craftsman ship is shocking.

Baby blue and white is nice!

Baby blue and white is nice! But title says "track".... braze-ons and drop-outs would indicate otherwise. Still cool bike.

mashin

you're pushing 92.9 inches (give or take .5 for tire size, crank arm and dick length etc) brakeless? that's silly big. wearing knee braces yet?

Really not that huge of a

Really not that huge of a task pushing a big gear. Can be scary brakeless on the street, but you get used to it. There was a guy around here riding 50:13 for mess work. Always saw him chillin around 30mph. He rode clips and straps too, was outta saddle after every light though.

I rode 49:14 slips n straps for a while and got tired of fighting the wind since it was winter. Then went to 50:15 with clipless for a while and loved it until my pedals died. Now I'm 50:17 and clips and straps. Spinning is cool sometimes.

very pretty bike, but that

very pretty bike, but that ratio wont make you faster, and you'll just blow your knees out. You'd be a lot more efficient on a 49x16 as opposed to a 53x15, thats hard even for track use.. Huge gear inches does not equal a faster bike, just more stress on your knees for no reason.
