I've been a fan of track cycling for years.  There's something fluid and elegant about a paceline turning laps doing perfect lead changes.  I decided last week that I was done with the rental track bikes in London and Milton and decided to get my own.  I think we're going to have lots of fun together.  If you haven't tried the track in Milton, what you are waiting for?  If you're already certified, I'll see you on the boards.

Sweet looking ride there Jon!

Waiting on a Track 1 date to appear, as I've  heard nothing but rave reviews about Milton so far.

Cool ride Jon

What gearing did you get on her Jon? Do you know if the frames got room to run a 50t front chainring? Looks like it would no problem but I dunno.
I'm tired of the 81 inch gear on the rentals. I'd like to run a 90 (maybe 50/15). Could do a 48/14 but 92.6 might be a bit heavy for me (I'm no track sprinter!)

It will definitely take a 50t chain ring. It has a 48 and came with a set of cogs, 13-17. I started with the 16 which gives an 81 inch gear. I have since switched to the 15 which gives 86 inches. The hub is threaded on both sides so I mounted the 14 tooth cog on the other side for an easy flip-flop gear change.
