New track bike!

My new Tiemeyer track frame arrived yesterday! Hooray! It's red!

Last August, I decided that a new track frame was in order. After exploring all possible options, I determined that the Tiemeyer was the only high end track frame that could fit me well, was durable and serviceable, and also readily available. I began discussing the bike with Dave Tiemeyer back in February.

We determined that a stock-geometry large frame would allow me to use my deep track drops in a mass start position, while also enabling a pursuit position with aero bars and a more forward saddle. The large, with seatpost and chainring removed, just barely fits in my hard travel case.

Hopefully I'll get to race it tonight, if the weather holds!
