All I'm saying is: since we're all living in 2012, the frame really should take disc brakes instead of cantis since even UCI accepts them nowadays. Yes, then the rear spacing would have to be 135mm spaced and there aren't that many manufacturers making 135mm fixed hubs but the option of being able to run disc brakes would be awesome.
My 'best bike' and summertime daily ride, Rossin Record Pista in its different guises since I got it in 2008. Evolution or compulsive upgrading of parts for no reason at all? Not sure, probably both.
What's more interesting is that initially I thought it might be bit too big for me but I've since swapped the stem for 2cm longer one and set the saddle a notch further back. Also, during the time I've had the Rossin, I've bought and sold bunch of track frames because they all turned out to be way too small for me. Live and learn.
"Chrome brings city flavor to the New Era Snapbacks and pops-out with color ways for each Chrome HUB store. The Chrome x New Era HUB Collection pays tribute to the local baseball team for each Chrome HUB location, the San Francisco Giants, New York Mets and Chicago White Sox."
I can dig. And my Friday Fashion tip: like Ruudolf & Karri-Koira, always rock sa snapback. You hear me? No fitted caps allowed. Ever.

I recently posted about a NOS Rossin Pista frame which was dug up from the Velosport shop's legendary warehouse, now couple of weeks later the shop owner discovered also the original fork which he gave to the guy who bought the frame. Free of charge. Simply awesome.
