Same as mine but you're probably a 6-8 inches taller than me. I have yet to sit on my bike though, but TT is 5mm longer than my road bike, and seat tube is 1 deg shallower than my road bike. I think the reach will be slightly shorter than my road bike. We'll see.

I also have a 57 DF4, but after my last fit, we decided I needed a larger frame. So I am working on getting one.

I like it a lot, but the seat post is noisy. Round holes are good.

They're just old fashioned metal 35cm Nitto AA125's. Light and stiff enough for me, but I'm no gorilla.

Which big brand component manufacturer currently makes 140mm stem in 6,7,10 degree? I found this but I don't want negative rise or too much positive rise idk I might have to settle with https://shop.fullspeedahead.com/stem...-k-12-mtb-stem

3T also makes the APTO in 140 and 150 - you have to order them from Europe. They're not listed on the US site, but I have had a 150 Apto on my bike, so I know they exist.

Hi, ya'll. Back in March, last time I raced it. It spends it's time on rollers or in a parking lot these days.

I have had this for a few years just never took the time to take pictures, good solid bike, front fork is size tight, but they have fixed this on the newer versions of this bike.

I've got that 150 Apto too, and wondering if you similarly want to slap the designer for the reverse clamp bolt design which you can't get a torque wrench on?

If I was in the meeting where that design was presented, I'd conduct an immediate experiment to discern how aero the designer was flying out the door!

Easter Bikes "Carpe Diem" ?

A friend has this bike and wanted info about it. I'm a road guy and don't know much about track bikes of this era (my track bike is a '50s Mertens) so I'm hoping someone will impart some knowledge regarding this frame.

Decal remnants (if original) are: "Carpe Diem" (cursive script) and "EASTER BIKES" (block letter script) both on the downtube. I assume the fork is a replacement. I was not told if bike is alloy (probably), steel (doubtful), or Ti. It is posted on another site, but no one has given any ID info or history. Thanks for helping.

Hi, @HPL. That bike is a "street fixed gear". You'll likely get more info posting in the Singlespeed / Fixed Gear forum: https://www.bikeforums.net/singlespeed-fixed-gear/

Also, this thread is more for people showing their training and racing bikes and talking about them. Not really about ID'ing bikes.

My 2 cents: It's a budget aluminum street fixie that's been beat to heck. Probably cost less than $500 new. Worth much, much less now.

Thank you for the response. Sorry for throwing it in this mix. I had no idea what it was, I also thought it was a "street" bike, but it seemed odd to have an "aero" design seat tube. My frames which are similar (but not track), are 80s TT bikes having "recessed" seat tubes, but still lugged conjunctions and round tubes. Again, thanks for confirming my suspicions. I won't waste anymore time myself, just trying to educate myself and another. I will post the Mertens if it is appropriate here (I'm too beat up and old to seriously race anymore). Generally, I'm posting in the C&V forum for road bikes. Sorry if I overstepped my boundaries.

No big deal.

The aero tubing was a feature of many street bikes (even the budget ones). You can buy tubing in that shape from ALCOA and the like where bike manufacturers buy their raw materials.

The bike isn't a total loss. Clean it up, install parts from your parts bin, maybe a rattle-can paint job, and you'll have a decent beater to ride to coffee shops and not have to worry about someone stealing your $$$$ nice bikes.

I wouldn't invest any real money or elbow grease into it as it's not worth it.

Yes, post your Mertens!
