I have been part of the forum for a while now but have only owned road bikes and have received nothing but good advice and assistance along the way from others on here.
I have slowly been sucked in to the world of fixed bikes and have bought my first track frame and will begin a CP.
Be gentle as I am definitely a novice.
What do I do now
What do I do now
Sell it, buy a road bike.
Advice will be appreciated around -
chain rings, stem, track bars or risers, taping the bars or grips,
cog /sprocket size, pedals and lastly wheels.
This bike will be used on the road and presume that this will affect the advice on the above topics.
I have bought (70-80s) 165mm campagnolo record cranks and pista BB so far.
It will be used around reasonable hills as well.
I have enough of those @Poetic :) and wanted to try my hand at something else.
Gonna be goood!
Don't be a damn tease and show the whole damn frame ;)
Reminds me of my own trajectory on here: from classic italian road bikes to track bikes. Looks like you scored a classy frame, can't go wrong with campa super record pista. Don't listen to poetic, he said sth similar when i got my Falcon. A year later I have three track bikes but I enjoy my road bikes just as much and wouldn't want to miss either one.
People are going to start thinking this is a fixed gear forum the way things are going.
More tease shots for @Thrasher :)
Build it quick and get down to Herne Hill...!
Anyone know anything about Moser frame serial numbers ?
I think this is aged around 83-84'
Oh yeah, Moser pista. Noice
No mudguard eyelets? Out..
Is the H/S pista specific ?
I don't think so. AFAIK the Pista headset was all polished, and didn't have the black bands.
This looks awesome, I think you'll love it!
Topic title needs this track
Sideshowbob, are you intending to Track only or also ride on road or a bit of both.
Define what you want to use it for.
This old thread may be a useful read.
Pick a low gear to start with and build up from that, your knees will thank you :)
Use - Road only.
The thread looks good and I will take a good look.
