    For track bikes meant to be raced into the ground, Tom K. and Dave Tiemeyer are at the top of my list. Land Shark is up there too. That Parlee belonging to Jackie Simes at NAHBS looked pretty sweet too.

    I've been considering pulling the trigger on a Hot Tubes track frame lately just for cost reasons but I lust after aluminum bikes. At $1,500, the Tiemeyer Satellite has to be one of the best bang for the buck custom deals out there.

    Bars are a bit high (not that you can really tell from these pics ;^), but I'm hoping to salvage the painted to match spacer so haven't done anything about it yet...

    Llewellyn.

    Yep, it's tacky for me to say because I'm biased (and that's why I haven't been on the site for a while...I see llewellyns in production practically every day...) but the track/fixed bikes I've seen come out of this house are serious competitive machines. Beautiful stuff. (and I haven't gotten snaps of the ones I've liked the most...booo)

    Yes, never ever leave Dazza out of a list of great builders. (Hi Ginger)

    Roland Della Santa does track too. We had a chat--super cool and old school.
