I prefer your older traditional frame with the nice lugwork. Where you from 1988, you selling the old frame?

^agree, but the baby blue frame isn't track, so maybe the GT would be better?

Hey, I know what you mean but I want a proper track frame with tighter geometry. I just dont like how far away the wheel are from the frame at the moment. I might end up selling the old frame, in from newcastle uk.

G60 - i'm not a huge fan of that build but the frame is fuckin nice.

easiest way to do it would be to look for a new back wheel, or if your confident with re-building the back wheel/on a tight budget then you could just buy a track hub. If you search ebay for wheelandsprocket you'll find some good track wheels.

if your living in queens then you may as well go check out the NY bike shops, try visiting trackstar (trackstarnyc.com/) and chari and co (www.chariandconyc.com)

bduque821 - yeah that frame would work fine. It's not a track frame but you would still be able to use it as a fixed gear.

juiceboxx - yes, just get a flipflop rear hub, on side of the hub you can have as a freewheel and the other side you can have fixed. But 6 miles aint shit i do around 10/15 miles a day fixed and know people who do much more mileage fixed every day. you get used to it easily. Then again, if your bike works fine as it is then theres no real need...

I use horns, and I love them. They offer multiple hand positions which I find to be incredibly beneficial

What's the frame size? 120mm dropouts? I could be interested at the right price if you sell...
