Greetings from Rochester, NY!
This is my second fixed gear, my first was an Uno Pista, #12,928 on the gallery.
I bought this amazing frame for a song and I wanted to do something special. I didn't want to skimp out on parts, but I also didn't want to break the bank. (Lots of eBay sniping and crawling the internet for closeouts.) Most everything was new or NOS; the crankset, BB, and seat post being the only exceptions.
Full build as follows:
- Don Walker pursuit track frame, 51x56, resprayed by Alan Wanta - Dura Ace 7710 track cranks, 167.5mm - Dura Ace track chainring, 48t - Dura Ace track cog, 14t - Dura Ace 7600 track hubs laced to NOS Mavic MA40 rims with DT double butted spokes - Shimano 600 headset - Nitto ADB-X bars - Deda Murex stem - KMC Ti Chain - Nitto "Crystal Fellow" seat post - San Marco Concor Saddle - San Marco leather bar tape - Vintage Italian bar plugs - Continental Attack/Force tires - MKS Track Prime pedals - MKS toe clips - NOS Christophe toe straps
It felt like this took ages to build up. It was well worth the wait! The geometry is perfect for me and it rides like a dream. I decided this bike won't be used on the street, I am saving it exclusively for the track.
Keep up the good work!
