Truvativ noir 685/ giant carbon stem 90mm

Masi saddle/ unloved concor

Brakes:
Shimano rsx100 dual pivots

You can't have a fixed beater if you don't have a main track bike.

Any bike that's fixed and is used for primarily utilitarian / don't-give-a-fuck purposes is a fixed beater, whether you have "main track bike" or not.

Not sure I like your attitude about a bike made by one of the top builders in Japan. Road training bikes drilled for brakes specially made for Keirin racers are hard to come by. You seem a little...ungrateful.

I don't get your problem, homes

Sorry I didn't spend enough money on it?

If you want some njs in the blingy-ass showroom new conditionway there's plenty of that cookie cutter nonsense on this site already
