Fixed gear/track bike

by Cycle_Jim   April 29, 2013  

Looking for a track bike that will be suitable for road use (ie. brakes) whilst also being able to be used on a track.

Currently looking at a dolan pre-cursa. Other suggestions in this price bracket?

This should keep you busy for an hour or two; http://www.lfgss.com/thread12358.html

Just make sure that cable guides for a back brake are removable and it meets the requirements of whatever track you want to use it at. This is the bike spec for Manchester and i believe Glasgow have used the same presumably the Olympic velodrome is the same too http://www2.nationalcyclingcentre.com/documents/Track%20bike%20specifica...

The NCC have never been too fussy about me taking my fixie on the track with the brake and other bits off, no issue with my Conti GP 4 Season tyres for example, however they wouldn't let it on unless it was spotlessly clean, which obviously resulted in n+1.
