Kyle’s Gilmour Track Bike

As someone who only rides bikes that were made in the States, Kyle‘s collection of steeds is quite impressive. Calfee road bike, Riv Saluki, S&M BMX, FBM Sword, Santa Cruz Stigmata cross and this Andy Gilmour track bike. When he picked this up from Anthony at Velo Cult, the allure of brakes and bottle cages took over. When all you do is climb on your track bike, hoods are the best thing you could ask for. The 44:17 gearing is ideal for the hilly rides of Los Angeles and tackling Griffith Park with ease… and the Campagnolo C-Record Pista group is just an added bonus.

    All the LA bikes you have had on here recently have been my favorite!

    I sure hope my Rivendell was made here too!  Gearing is actually 44 X 17.

    t-minus 10 minutes before someone claims it isn’t a track bike now

    How’re you liking the TRP levers? We’ve got a set kicking around the shop and I’m always curious…

    So I’ll take the bait; is it a track bike with brakes or is it a fixed gear road bike? The head tube looks rather relaxed for a track bike.

      Track bike with brakes. It has track ends, a higher BB, steeper angles than a road bike and a track-influenced rake.

    Wow.  Nice bike. I’d say the rear drops give it away as a track bike.  I’d put a Brooks on it.

      No way! Vintage Cinelli Unicanitor is the way to go!
