Weaknesses: Not a big fan of the Miche hub with the Miche adaptor. I couldn't take the adaptor ring off so I had to order a 14 tooth to continue riding the stock Ritchie wheels. Needs 170 cranks instead of 165.
The 2004 bike replaces a 2003 frame that was a replacement for a friend's frame that I bent while borrowing the bike for track racing. The 2004 has some slight improvements over the 2003. Improved drop-outs, integrated head-set, slight change in top tube shaping. I ride the bike stock except for FSA chain rings ordered from Businesscycles in Miami. The bike is super stable under speed, sharp handling on 44 degree banking, no flex that I can feel. All around good race machine. Lot's of guys on the track now riding these bikes this year. No one even brought one to the track until the end of last season.
So long story short, everything set to the correct torque on my Pro Vibe Track stem. Yesterday I noticed a crack near the screw hole of the faceplate. Is it possible to get just a replacement faceplate? Love this stem!Read More »
I have a Pro Vibe Track Stem, and I've seen a few with custom decals. Does anyone know if these are commercially available?

I'd like to keep the bike for at least a couple of years before any major upgrading. I also don't want to have the most newb ... Read More »
My kid just purchased a 2009 Fuji track pro frame and is trying to determine the correct bottom bracket type and size, as well as a compatible crankset that will work with this frame. I believe the bottom bracket type is ISIS and the size is 68 x 108 but am looking to get some con ... Read More »
