How does that frame handle on the track? I'm looking for reviews on it but I'm coming up short.

From last night's session. Due for a new/proper crank but go back and forth on a power meter or not. Currently thinking of getting Rotor with power2max.

Here is my bike. Finally prepared and approved for riding in our velodrome.



So much better than using those rental bikes

Thought it about time I start racing again since my crash earlier in the year; so have renewed my race licence for 2015 and finally built up the BT Stealth frameset I bought to replace the written off Fuji.

Only change may be a slightly longer stem due to the shorter and shallower Scatto's...

That's the plan. Maybe Kenosha too. I understand both are beginner friendly which will be good for me.

Awesome! I did two training clinics late last season and it was awesome! I'd also like to go up to Kenosha and race. Indianapolis would be a fun weekend trip, too.

Awesome! That's a beauty. What frame size is she? And what stem/handlebar combo is on her?

And sorry, but not familiar with that piece of tech behind the saddle also, is that a cyclometer? I don't see on-handlebar cyclometers so am guessing that they're not allowed. Is this the alternative?

That is an SRM head unit - a cyclometer that is connected to the power-measuring SRM crankset.

you're right, computers aren't allowed to be visible to the rider, so most riders mount their head units to their saddle or seatpost so it can still record their data.

Thanks.

It is a 57cm BT Stealth from 2007 (bought the frameset lightly used last year - barely a mark on it). Stem is just a 110mm Deda Quattro and bars are 37cm 3T Scatto's.

Computer under the seat is a SRM PCV for my SRM cranks. As queerpunk already mentioned, computers need to be possitioned so the either cannot be seen or covered so the screen cannot be read. I will have the computer on the bars of my second bike as I use it for training and club racing where they don't enforce that rule...

it'd be cool if companies like bt would make aluminum track frames for the consumer market.

i know. i was looking at the dolan seta in another forum, but was told they don't make them anymore. really nice bike. my lbs carries felt. i'm riding a windsor the hour with 3t funda pro fork. tk3 and move most of my parts wouldn't hurt. i'll figure something out in the near future.

*not posting my bike because its a rat beater more suited for the fixed forum

My All-City was a bit too big for me so I decided on getting a new bike. After much research I decided on a new bike and placed a special order. When it is frame complete and the bike is set-up, I post pics, but for now it's a secret.

So why am I posting here? I decided that my old team bike from the '80s was in need of some TLC. So my wife and I stripped it down, painted, and clear coated. I recycled some of my All-City parts to build what will be my workhorse bike. I plan to gear it a bit lower to race against the Sr4s and Jr3s. The secret machine will be for the Masters races.

Anyway, my Schwinn Paramount was built in April 1975, so its first race this year will be on its 40th anniversary!











It's fully equipped with Shimano Dura Ace, so don't tell the vintage bike guys about my bike or I'll never here the end of it for not using Campy.

That Schwinn looks amazing!

Here is my custom Marinoni 40th anniversary track with Columbus SL tubeset. Ready for Milton. The tradition of lugged frames is way before my time but I love classic steel bikes, level TT, box section tubuars, etc. I rode it at FCV a couple weekends ago to dial everything in. I've since installed some Speedplay track pedals and I'd like to find a Campagnolo Record pista crank but I had this sitting nearly unused so I figured the best thing to do is ride the hell out of it before swapping anything out.

Lovely! Saddle is way wrong, though. Re-pop 80's Turbo would be perfect.

Just riding what works. Every bike I own has some flavour of Arione, they work really well for me. Didn't really want to go through the expensive trial-and-error process to find some retro saddle for the sake of aesthetics! If it was going to hang on the wall, I agree

Thanks and right back at ya for your sweet Marinoni. Marinonis were the hot new track bike back at T-Town in the 80s. I definitely wanted one.



I agree these vintage bikes don't look right without a Turbo saddle. Note the Turbo saddle and the authentic aero Campy seatpost too.





P.S. It's snowing outside and I'm bored.

I actually like the look of the modern saddles, but fair enough. I actually looked for a Campagnolo aero post, but I found I was going to be cutting it really close with the min-insertion. Those older posts aren't all that long and I find those look best when the aero section is pretty close to the top of the seat tube. I like the curve of the Nitto, although did have a bit of slippage on the track today. Need to adjust for tomorrows session.
