I have been riding on the track for a whil and I'm looking for a good entry level track bike to get me started.
Although i am looking second-hand and at the hillbricks, de ver's and felt's (tk3, possibly tk2 if i find it on special) but i have seen this Principia bike. on the cell website it hints that it is the Argon 18 Electron frame, but it does look slightly different (not sure if it is an older model or totally different frame). Does anyone own one of these bikes and could give me info about it. Also, i really like the felt tk2 and any opions about i would be great. Also i hear the wheels are rebranded Pro-lites, not sure about this either, or if they are any good. As a side not I can probably get cranks, chainrings, wheels and tires and probably some other componants cheaply if they need replacing.
here are the links:
I got an Avanti Pista, Alex rims and I put Continental supersonics on it.
It has been nice and reliable. I picked it up for a good price second hand. Maybe if you are just getting going, have a look around for a 2nd hand one first.
From what I have heard Hillbrick and Principia have a great reputation.
"Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever" Lance Armstrong
The Principia's Alloy track bikes are made by Pro-Lite and are simply a re-branded Pro-Lite Trentino frame. If any form member wants a propper Pro-Lite track bike (2010) Colours contact me and I'll beat the best price you can find in Australia on a Principia. I have a container full of them.
The only difference between the Principia and the 2010 Pro-Lite is the paint job, and the Pro-Lite 2010 model has a revised crankset which is a lot stronger than the older version you will find fitted as standard to the Principia.
I've just uploaded the 2010 photos to our site: http://www.pro-liteoz.com/store/index.p ... oductId=32
