This project actually started in July of 2014. At that moment I decided that I needed a new track frameset and as track market was boring I decided to get something custom. As I don't have helluvalot money I chose Robert from bikemielec to do it. He works cheap. 220€ shipped including, smooth welds, integrated headset, custom geo and paint.
With the help from my fella Dr.Escroto ( :oops: ) we choose Mash Parallax geo was ace. To reduce weight due to the heavy tubing Robert uses we made the frame with certain sloping. We put +0.5º on the front because planet-x track fork has 25mm rake.

To complete the build I used the other components I had in my previous track bike, except for the seat-post, headset, seat-clamp and fork.

List of weights of the components:

And this is how it looks like:

With few € I could save some weight.
Changing the saddle and seatpost for some cheap carbon aliexpress would be around 40€ and 260gr less.

:welcome: Welcome to the forum.

Very nice track rig. What type of track racing do you do?

My focus this season is race the regional endurance track championship which is basically an omnium but it's: 25k points race, 7.5k scratch and 3k TT.
Although during the season there's the Track League, like above is an omnium held in 4 consecutive weekends, that includes all types of racing, i.e. kerin, sprint and point race the same day.
Also, I'm not 100% atm, I'll race track bike criteriums like the redhook.

I would use different rims, stiffer rims that give give you a stiffer wheelset important for power transfer and the type of thing you do. There are 24H black Pacenti SL23 rims with a black brake track or for a lighter rim you could use the Ryde Pulse sprint rims (silver brake track). the ultimate though would be velocity aileron as it is extreemtly stiff, 30mm deep with a aero profile and disc brake specific. As you don't need brakes this is not an issue. 450g for each rim too and it comes in 24H drilling. Lace them to 24H track hubs, Miche will do them if you want good budget if you can use them in the racing you do. Do not know the regs. Phil Wood do 24H hubs too or is it Paul.

Thanks for the advice ;) Will consider it in the future. What spokes do you recommend me? Probably best 24h hubs are mack hubs. Handmade in Poland.

At the moment I'm trying to save some money to buy new groupset for the road bike, now I'm using old ultegra 6500 9spd.

Finall weight is ~7716g. Weighted three times and averaged.
