After building up my Ti Merckx, I fell in love with the way Ti rides. I came across this Ti Litespeed track frame and had never seen one before in my size so I swooped the opportunity to own one. They are super rare as Litspeed only built a small hand full. I plan on this being my race bike, the build now consist of parts I have been saving for a special build. Parts will be swapped as race season approaches but for now I'm super stoked on how this bike rides!
The steer tube is actually 1", I originally threw a Wound Up fork on it but the original owner had this Colnago track fork that was a tighter rake. Love the head badge. I tossed on a Dede Pista setup I ran on my Affinity Kissena wrapped in some deep sea fishing pole grip. Thanks Josh!
The finish matches the frame pretty well.
The only extra rear track wheel I had at the time of this build was a C Record "sheriff star", I'm saving this wheel for a different project, stay tuned.
All City rear cog, I've said this before but these gogs run so smooth and break in perfect. The chain is a KMC Lite, very nice combo. Right now I'm running 51/17.
I went with one a classic combo of a Thompson seat post and a Italia Flite Titanium.
Prolly sold me these pedals a couple of years back for a great deal, still super smooth thanks man!
Over all the bike is on point, after I swap the wheels out this will be added to the permanent collection.
I have a couple of more bikes to share, all of these bikes as well as others will be displayed and for sale at a up coming project soon.
