Looking for a Track Bike!!

Either the frame or the whole bike...

Looking for a Track Bike... Nothing specific, but I'm just starting out so a beginner series would be fine.

(If you're not sure what a track bike is... Fixed gear bike, with no brakes)

I'm hot to buy something, so if you have one just sitting around or KNOW someone who does... Please let me know!

dirt Flat track racing? WOW!!!
Some how I didn't see you as the racing type.
How big of a bike are you looking for?

Personally, I love racing Motard.
Well loved it before I got busted up. Now 3 slipped discs and a jacked up right shoulder are all I have to remind me of racing.

Size.. yeah.. that would be good.

The track bikes I'm riding are for a velodrome, and on tar surface right now.

My Trek road bike is 56 cm and that seems to fit me just fine.

I have a great Fuji you might like, but I cannot recall the size in cm. I think it might be a 21" frame.
Only trouble is that it is currently a road bike with ten whole speeds.

Everything else would be perfect for you though, assuming that the size is right. A very tall rigid and lightweight racing frame from the late 70's. It used to be my track bike until I converted it to a road bike. I think I even still have the wheels that require the glue on tires.

Anyway, let me know if you have no other luck and maybe I will pull it off the hook in my garage and reconfigure it for you. I won't ride it anymore myself as I have turned my back on both tracks and roads.

Fixies are pretty popular in Boston with the messenger crowd. I'll make a couple of calls if you like, I have a few friends who are bike messengers. You should also post to the Mass Bike mailing list, some good guys there.

If you're going to be riding on the road, I would suggest at least a front brake. Chains break.

I have a steel framed Specialized allez 58c

it would need to much work to get the STI worthy for the road, but the frame is in very good shape, and it would make a nice single tracker.

I could strip off the unneeded parts., and send you the essentials.

Nice bike but not a track bike per say as Ti is far to flexible for real track riding. Merlin was in Somerville not Cambridge Gwen was a good friend whom I did a lot of work for on team and special projects.

Carter let me call my Boston store on Monday to see what is about for bikes/ frames.

Just do me a couple of favors get a metric tape measure and measure you seat tube center of the BB to center of the top tube, measure the center of the top tube to seat and head tube. and finally measure you seat hight center of the bb to top of the seat.
