Best track framesets under $900?

I'm looking to get a new aluminum track frameset in January and I want some good options.

I've been considering a Cinelli Mash Bolt frameset but I want to see what else there is,

Aesthetics is a big issue for me so I'd like something that looks nice. I don't care about the Mash's or Kagero's sloping down tube, I don't have any problems with it. It'll be used on the road, I don't plan on doing velodrome much.

On my list right now are:

Bianchi Super pista
Cinelli Mash Bolt 2012
Kagero 2012.

What do you recommend? and why?

Their frames are made by colossi, plus that model I just linked to is apparently the exact same as superbs sprint frame.

Basilios took the words right out of my mouth. I saw several shops in Europe branding this frameset as their own. All in all... a nice looking frameset.

Wow that frame looks amazing.
Does anyone know where else i can find that frameset besides the superb sprint and the factory five?

Check out colossi's stuff as well. As you can tell from that other frame, they make gorgeous stuff. Just a bit hard to obtain..

Just an idea... If you are riding on the road, why aluminum? It's the stiffest/most unforgiving material. There are so many nice steel and carbon frames you can afford(used) at your price point. Make the consideration.

planet x track is well within your price point and is a really smooth ride, compared to my previous aluminum frameset.

I'd say the the new Bianchi Super Pista. There seems to be a lot of hype for the new Kagero too, so you can always jump on that bandwagon, but I'd stick with Bianchi. Check out citygrounds website if you haven't seen it (2013 model)

a Look AL 464 P would be great but a lot of people are gonna say, "keep it on the track"
IMO its your bike and ride it where u want.
in another case if your riding on the street the 464 it wont be as forgiving as other bikes.
