Maybe a bit late to be asking this, but is it wrong to actually glue track tubulars? It seems tape alone is the installation method of choice here. That scares me. But people are looking at me like I have 2 heads when they see that I glue my tubulars.

An aussie friend (also a weight weenie) suggests shellac instead of regular tubular glue.

Awesome pictures and awesome bikes - looks like a ton of fun!

I see you've got your bike pretty much settled, but regarding lightweight components in the track world, I've found that the Dura Ace 7710 crank/BB (the octalink sys, with "hollow" driveside crankarm) are the lightest around at 505g for the arms and 179g for the BB, even lighter than the FSA Carbon. A lot of top-level riders use either DA 7600 or 7710. That said, the Omnium/GXP system is extremely stiff and much cheaper.

I've also found carbon bars like the Easton or Cobra to be the same or heavier than top quality aluminum. Here again, stiffness is king and 31.8 is probably the way to go.

All the frames are porky. Cervelo's excellent T1 is over 2kg, iirc.

Thanks. We decided to make weight a lesser consideration than budget. We got a lot of performance for the dollar with these bikes.
