    re: the address on the head badge, this is a good way to age the frame because, as I recall, the frames that came with them/were in production had the address blanked out. I imagine they had a load of headbadges they didn't want to bin either so it would place the frame just after the move. I used to have a Condor with a similar obscured address.

    I do know where that is actually, there are very few crenellated buildings in Brighton :)

    I've got some brand new and uncut Columbus Grammy Slim I bought a while back for a project that never got off the ground.

    Straight 1 1/8th. DM me if you're interested.

    I've never seen integrated mudguards on a track bike before. Practical for commuting certainly

    Here's mine, not a great pic, but you can see the sparkles. I built it with a silver finishing kit for additional shiney.

    NOTE: No brake as its for racing only, don't @ me for brake chat :)

    I have had a Cinelli Mash Parallax (alu) and now own the steel Vigorelli, both used for track racing.

    Here are some points based on my experience

    1. Steel Vig paint work is incredible, people ask whether its custom. It's really that great. The sparkles are all difference colours and on the black finish with the silver logos it does look like a mobile disco of radness
    2. Steel Vig forks are 45mm rake which means no horrendous toe overlap so better for everyday application
    3. Steel Vig has longer wheel base so less skipping when sprinting (in my experience)
    4. Get the steel one

    Steel is just so much more rad in all cases. It looks the business, has better geo (in my experience), its plenty stiff enough for racing (it uses Columbus Thron which is hefty stuff). Its a bit heavier, but who cares? Its much much more rad

    Racing people with these wheels makes it sound like you're being chased by a spaceship
