49x17 to the track, 49x15 or 50x15 at the track.

I picked this up about a third of the way through the season - I didn't want to keep racing my Pogliaghi. The Felt did me well, though perhaps its extremely short wheelbase isn't appropriate for a bumpy track like Kissena. It fared very, very well at Trexlertown.

When this wasn't sporting that borrowed Zipp, I was using the Zeus wheel from my Pog, with a Miche cog carrier system (which, by the way, is an excellent piece).

Right now, this is sitting in my bike room, sans wheels, pedals, bars, and saddle, waiting for next season.

It's worth noting that TK2s size a small 52cm. The toptube is 51.5, and fits me well. It has a very tight wheelbase with significant toe overlap - no, foot/pedal overlap. A few poorly-designed elements that Felt has addressed with more recent models, but overall a solid midlevel alu track frame.

I probably won't go out there again until the spring, though.

I've done street racing but

Street racing so far, havent made it out to the 'drome yet. I got a tk2 just for that purpose, though, so now all I need is the time.
