Why does a travk bike need a pump and pump pega? Still a great bike, just curious....

oddly enough, I just bought that bike off ebay. Pump & peg were first to go. Sadly the rear wheel did not make it long either. 3 miles into it's reborn life, the spokes lost tension and the rim collapsed into 8 pieces. Was able to completely drop our local training race lead group with 400lbs of big track dudes and a 57x15 gear.

Modernized the drive train, that skip tooth drive was really worn out, and 172.5 cranks are more proportional to the current crew. A few ti seatposts and white walls, and a new terror has been created.


Will take it out to the velodrome here in town next week after I am certain that the bike is ready for the stress.
