well yes, I'm going to give track riding a go. Hoping to start doing Wed nights now that its warmed up. But, I need a bike that fits.

My road bike is 56cm TT so I guess that's where I should start. So, looking for a cheap steel or alloy frame or a complete bike in the < $1k range.

This looks good for a begineer like me and it's the perfect size :lol: >> http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BT-STEALTH-T ... 335wt_1398

Heaps of riders were using these at the GP yesterday so they must be good!

There's also this steel frame 'fixie' which seems pretty cheap, although 23" = about 58cm which is huge - not sure about then using it on the track though? Any clues?

Yeah I am not great at working out dimentions of bikes that should work on the track, but I think that BT stealth should pass on most tracks.
