Im just about to pull the trigger on a Fuji Track that I can cop for $450 CDN. I am considering a SE Draft Lite, but seems like its a consensus that it has bad components. Does anyone hate their Fuji Track?

it's a good starting bike, i've heard the stock hubs don't withstand back pedaling or skidding too well, though. but i don't have any first hand experience with them

It's a solid bike, all things considered. My first bike was a Pista Concept and then I bought a regular Pista to fuck around with. I've since sold the Concept and am satisfied with the Pista as a quick, reliable bike. The geometry isn't ideal for me but i think in the long run it's worth the money

I'm currently working on this fuji frame I picked up. Had a lot of rusting so I'm sanding it down and going to give it a proper paint job.

picked up a new wheelset. cane creek v-33 cf track wheels. I can't believe how much better these wheels feel over my last wheelset. Wish they weren't red but I got a sweet deal.



also got some super cheap bull horns. I'll switch the purple out when I found some cheap black bull horns.

i've been running soma cages for the past 7 months and they are still fine. I might also be selling my double toshis, but they are blue. Good call on not wanting the gr9s, I have them and I don't really like them other than the fact they all black.

I also might be getting rid of my messengers for 75s.

You prolly wouldnt notice the difference between the XD and RDs...

I love MKS GR9s, and hate MKS Sylvans.
Currently running RX-1s, and theyre pretty awesome... Even though a buddy of mine told me they were comparable to Sylvans... They are a whole lot better than Sylvans.

I used Avenir Plastic cages on a beater bike, and theyre pretty sturdy. Part of the plastic snapped, where the strap goes through, but it still holds in the straps perfectly fine.
MKS cages havent done me any wrong. I hate the Somas.

IF youre gonna get a leader, get the 725 or 735...

My friend has the 721, and its pretty half assed...

The drop out measurements are completely off... His wheel is pretty much touching the seat tube, and its bolted at the end of the drop outs... Pretty fuckin fail.

Or just save and get a Fuji Track Comp/Pro pre 09.

yeah I was gonna say, leader frames really aren't that cheap. You could pick up a used ftp for less than what a leader frame would cost you. Is 189 for the frame, 150 for their fork, and like 100 bucks for a good headset.

be prepared to read the most elementary question in this entire thread:
On my fixed gear bike i have oury grips. about a month ago i took them off very carefully to cut my handlebars down a little. after that i used soapy water to put my handle grips back on and since then they have not stuck on worth a damn. i have tried numerous times to get them to stick in place via dish soap, hand soap, hairspray etc and they still just slide around when a little force is applied. how on earth do i get these things to stay on there????

Im not too knowledgeable in fixies because I just got my first one. BUT, I know when I change my golf grips, I put double sided tape around the club. Then I put paint thinner inside the grip and slide it on top of the double sided tape. The paint thinner evaporates and voila, I have a new grip on my club. Maybe that would work?? confused
