The Colnago Dream Plus is a sweet frame. But have you ever seen a Dream Pista? Acording to the Colnago website, the Dream Pista is basicly a Dream Plus but with track drop-outs. Same geometry. But I find that hard to believe because Ernesto knows as well as anyone that a track frame must have steeper geometry and a higher bottom bracket for velodrome use. Anyone ever see/ride one?
is this the one?Qubeley

one of the best 6 day racers in the world for the last few years. Partnered with Matt Gilmore, also with Mapei this year. Nice bike too !

Hey don't get me wrong, it sure is pretty, but the geometry is the same a Dream roadbike, and the frame/fork combo go for $1600. That's pretty darned rich for a track frame especially when you can get custom built one for something around half the price. I'd be afraid to crash the thing and get a scratch on it; it would become a garage ornament.
