Crit Frame

(closed)
hey everyone I am currently looking for a sweet frame I could use for crit racing.
my budget is 500-1000 $ and I was ideally looking for a steel frame but aluminium is gucci too.
Any suggestions ?
cheers !

Bombtrack Needle is what I'd get if I was looking for a crit whip

Which one is that Jehu ?
The needle is pretty sweet but can't find the price.

The new vig is cheaper and lighter than the bombtrack so yeah.

Do your own research, look at what other racers are riding, get whatever you like the most

aerodynamics matter more than weight in crits tbh but don't go with some bs fake aero bike just because of it. you want something with a higher bb than a normal track bike and a slightly longer wheelbase. other than that there's not much to it. the caad 10 track is really good for crits because they have geometry similar to a road bike.
