Very clean build.
That Rolls does set it off.
Are ya sure your frame is a 56cm?
How long is your TT?
My GTB measures in at 23 inches ctc (toptube)


Perfect Street track Bike right there dude.. question is that a 26.0 or 25.4 clamp stem? im looking for one just like that

it's a 26.0 with a Nitto

it's a 26.0 with a Nitto Shim - clamps perfectly with the shim, and it's practically invisible

Nice. Funnily enough, I

Nice. Funnily enough, I have a red saddle on my GTB and it really does balance out the bike nicely. I should take a photo, I haven't updated my page in awhile

One hell of a GTB my man -

One hell of a GTB my man - it looks awesome! How do you like the Rolls ?

definitely more comfortable

definitely more comfortable than my perforated turbo - love it

Rock and roll .

Rock and roll .

Hhaha a silver

Hhaha a silver seatpost/black saddle could be in order....

How do you like the Mavis? Do they hold up for brakeless street riding?

had a black perforated turbo

had a black perforated turbo / silver thomson on it before - didn't like it

as for the Mavics: so far so good! people encounter problems when treating them like cheap wheels. don't force / crank on the axle bolts, be sure to steady the axle with an allen key, and don't over-tighten the nuts. enough is enough.

also, use a thick cog with softer threading like EAI or Dura Ace and NEVER use anything but the Mavic lockring, as it is proprietary threaded. people will tell you that other lockrings work or suggest spacers and whatnot - this is really just cheap alternatives to doing the right thing. and using something like a Phil cog will chew the hub threads to shit since they're so hard.

aside from those few notes, let it be known that these wheels are incredible - bombproof at 20h and spin smoother and longer than anything else ive ever ridden

oof.that saddle..

oof.that saddle..

trade the seatpost for one in silver! :D

traded my former silver one

traded my former silver one for this black one already!

and that's the whole point of that saddle - the all-black needs to be offset by something exciting...

oh really? hah hmmm..well

oh really? hah hmmm..well just a suggestion.
i personally like to keep components (stem, seatpost, crankset) consistent cuz it makes it look cleaner...
but then again it is YOUR bike.
i know it still rides great as is (i had one too and loved it).
hows the ellipse wheelset riding?
