Just got this bike via a silver lining. I had just bought a Fuji Track, cheap, but lovable. After riding for about a month a defect in the CroMoly caused the frame to snap! I could have been injured, luckily I was not. I went to the dealer, thinking they'd just give me a new Track, but the felt bad, so they gave me a new Track Pro, with a custom fork, drilled for brakes. I am waaaaay outclassed by my bike, but I love every second I have with it, it's a rocket, and it weighs nothing.

Dan's Fuji Track Pro Fork drilling problem

I have drilled a couple of these forks ( I also have the sweetest track pro with phil high flange hubs) The fork base is aluminum. You will need a drill press and be sure to center-punch first. Nice bike and great that LBS has integrity (and Fuji for that matter)

You are a lucky, lucky man.

Carbon fork drillout advice

Hey Dan,
Nice bike and great deal. I want to put a brake on my Fuji Track pro too but people tell me it's not safe to drill a hole in the carbon fork. How did you do it?

Nice ride! What were the

Nice ride! What were the circumstances with the cromoly snapping? That must have been scary as hell.

You may consider reuploading your photos in reverse order (upload the picture of the whole bike as Photo One and the fork as Photo Two), so a picture of your entire bike shows up on the Thumbnails page.

I was riding it to the bike

I was riding it to the bike shop to get it tightened up, as I had been riding it for about a month. During my ride I felt like every hard turn I made was "soft" I felt like maybe my tires were going flat, when I made it to the shop, they immediately pointed out that the rear section of the frame was completely separated, and that the bike was totaled. Everyone was super nice though, and I couldn't have asked for a better replacement.

DUde thats crazy

Now i am wondering if that's what happened to me. My cro mo bike is snapped apart too but i thought it was cut through by some hooligan haters. I will try and post some more pics for comparison soon but for now here are some on flickr. Is this similar to what your frame looks like?
