Here it is, my most recent acquisition, a full columbus SLX 1989 Duell track pursuit frame in fantastic condition.
Built with what parts I had lying around it is now absolutely and perfectly rideable but I am still on the lookout for a few ‘choice’ parts… Namely a Steel, 65 degree drop variation of the Nitto ‘Jaguar’ stem, somesort of chrome aero seatpost and a set of decent cranks, oh and that white tyre has got to go! But for now I marinade and simply enjoy it.
It is a bit like riding permanently on the drops but the fact it takes a 700c up front makes it a little more forgiving on your wrists, thank goodness! The sheer tightness of the frame makes toe overlap a bit of an issue but not too much of a big deal, I mean it is not like I plan on doing barspins or anything! This thing is made to go fast in a straight line and that is what will continue to be done.
