Nice, entry level track setup?(3 posts)

Nice, entry level track setup?Steamroller in a track setting
Feb 11, 2002 2:56 PM
Anyone out there used a Surly Steamroller racing track, or just in general and can attest for their stiffness? How do they handle compared to a standard road geo. setup, and what is the fork like? Also, any other recommendations for an entry level track FRAMESET? And is it blasphemy to use carbon road forks racing track? Take, for example, a Look HSC2? Thanks for your help.

for a frameset, check out DeBernardi. They are relatively cheap and pretty good. Also, Bianchi has a cheap complete track bike as well as fuji. it seems like you can always score one of the GT track bike/frames used, just check for ads posted around your closest velodrome ;)

i haven't ridden/seen the surly, but if the geometry is similar to a true track frame (check the geometry tables on the bianchi or fuji webpages) it should be fine.
