    well, ditch the front brake and you would indeed have a winner
    and how big of a picnic are you planning to pack in that saddle bag?
    just joking...that is indeed a pretty fly ride.

    They look a lot like Midge bars to me.

    hmmm...let's see:
    i prefer front-load dropouts over track ends--much easier to mount wheel and chain.
    don't care for brooks saddles.
    don't care for the saddle pack.
    would like an aero lever rather than a single in-line.
    and valve caps, OMG!!!!!!


    seriously, that bike sucks. the owner should just give it to me rather than wasting his time on it.

    What's the thing in the middle of the top tube?

    Love the gold retro cranks and rims. If I had it. I'd make the stem, bars and post gold to.

    well, the bike doesnt look like S&S .... so the other option is top tube protector.. but thats not a track bike, nor does it have bare bars, and if it did, the bar is not in a position to scratch the toptube anyway...

    so, in conclusion, i have no idea

    Yes, it is a tube protector thing. I think its there just for blinginess because those things ain't cheap.

    Awesome!

    Awesome! Is that Gary's new Scorcher, the one with the Flyer's lugs? It has to be. I *LOVE* the reverse taper of the seatstays. See both bikes in person at the fixed gear symposium this weekend in MI. Wish I was going.

    Really pretty. Justin's is nice too.



    So many nice bike, so little expendable income..........

    It looks like the Five Gold TT protector, as others have already said.

    Gaansari rocks.

    This kind of thing just comes off so much more beautiful with a proper quill stem. I better not show that picture to my baby blue Il Pompino, she'll make like Hollywood's Marzocchi and cry on the couch all night
