Not Nashbar. I looked at those, but they don't include the fork. More importantly than no fork is that the Nashbar deal one's are the pre-recall frames so you can't run larger than a 44t chainring without using a MTB width BB because the chain stays are in the way. This of course would be problem with Omniums since they are outboard bearings and a fixed axle length. I bought mine New from a shop in California for $450 + 25 shipping.

Got it, actually some of them have had crimped seatstays and some don't XD, and yeah, no fork. The crimped seatstay can fit mostly anything

^ Niiiiiiiiiiiiice!


And that Fuji is nice too, just looked at the Nashbar deal, $200!? I wish I was just a tad larger, as all they have is the 54cm left. :( Anyone know where I can get a slick deal on a 52cm track bike frame? :P

Gorgeous bike Sugarkane. My friend got a blue/orange Makino frame/fork/headset for $450. Keep your eyes peeled on your local craigslist, you can probably find a nice cheap fixed frameset

[quote="Timo"]
Presto is a bike shop in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. They used to have a line of Columbus tubed steel frames. They were build in the factory of Andrea Pesenti in Italy, painted in Belgium and build up in Amsterdam. Not weightweenie at all, I know.[quote]

Before they had their bikes built in Italy, they would actually build you a frame in their old shop in the Haarlemmerstraat from either Columbus or Reynolds steel. I had mine built there.

Sure, some bullhorns would have been nicer, but these flats with 5 degree sweep work well.
