...but it's my nicest track bike.

Colnago Mexico pista in Kwantum team colours, ca. 1984. Recently I found the right stem and bars for it, together with some Campagnolo Record pista pedals. I will update this when I find the time, for now you might like these pics:

The geometry is severe. It only takes a little lean (or should i say just a look) to point this one where you both need to go. Awesome, especially at 50 km/h!

By the way there's a small movie here, impression of a recent day at the Velodrome for fixed gear riders but (most of them) track newbies in Alkmaar, The Netherlands:

Ooh, I'd like to be let loose at Manchester Velodrome on that!

Superb!

Wow. That's a beauty. And the clearances on the front wheel/downtube and front wheel/fork crown are insane...
