i'm thinking of buying one of these track framesets;

and using on the road.

the challenge i set you is; what's the lightest it can be when built up? i only want a front brake.

"no frippery. Rides briskly"

I like frippery on my bike. If you are really concerned about weight, don't start with a steel frame.

Well, steel frame is one thing - I have a Waterford R33 built up to sub 15 lbs, so it is possible.
But will this thing be too stiff - as in stiff enough to knock your fillings out?
Looks great though.
