honestly its very hard to find a good condition one for under 600. all NJS frames are good, i would kill to have a nagasawa.
best bet is search some of the track market Japanese blogs and hope you find something.
ive seen some for around 550 the cheapest but there usually rusted and chipped pretty bad.

um...

yeah i do realize the geometry is nice.
but that is exactly what i am talking about.
super tight geo (overlap and all), threaded components, less rake on the fork (f barspin clearance)

throw some nice silver components on there, nice mavic/lowpro wheelset.

any ideas? possibly keirin steel or stay italian?



It's not hard to change up a Bianchi Pista to make it "more track."

Here's a picture of mine and how I changed it.

Painted to shit and just a fuckin beater. Can't even ride it anymore, because the bottom bracket - chainstays creak.

Lets compare it to your Pista.


Notice the tire clearance from your downtube is different compared to mine? A simple fork/headset change made that difference. Change your gearing and take out a link in your chain, and it will bring your rear tire a lot closer to your seat tube.

And when someone said that you can sell your bike complete for around $500... They weren't lying. You'll get more money parting your bike out, as opposed to trying to sell it complete.

And it doesn't matter how long or how far you ride your bike.

If you make a mistake, you've made a mistake, own up to it and don't try to approach it with confrontation. It's the internet.

Anyways.
My ride...


Switched out the Cinelli stem/3ttt Pistas to Nitto Pearl/B123s.
Also switched the RX-1s/MKS Doubles to Time Atacs.

Still need to re-pack my Suzue/Open Pro wheel set, then I'm gonna throw it on there.
But for now, Phil to B43/Deep V.

true true.
any ideas on a frameset? preferably like under 600$

samson, bridgestone, panasonic, fuck everything looks so sick but i dont even know where i would find one.


just start cruising la fixed. some times a vivalo or something cool comes up for around that price. for example there is this bridgestone for 450 but its a 53.5

i saw that , beautiful bike, sucks its too small.

@stunt i absolutely love my bike, but i feel it would simply just be fun to build something else up, just like a little project or something.

i'd fucking love to build up a cannondale track though, absolute dream bike &)&)

wtf. thats nuts. buying a custom fitted bike seems kinda weird though.

still, 500 dollars? i thought it costs like 1500 to order a frame from yamaguchi.



the guy who owns this bike spent like 3k on it or something. pretty ridiculous for an ugly bike confused

In the real world, people sell stuff for a lot less than what they paid.

But on the internets, people sell for way more than they paid.

now thats just crazy speak (sarcasm).

custom bikes always go for cheap. mostly b/c unless you have a twin that bike isn't going to be the right size for anyone else...

As long as it isn't a conversion thats a pretty good deal. And yeah, I like it. I get compliments on it all the time. The geometry is a bit stiff for street riding but its an aluminum bike so thats to be expected.
