I like it. Deserves some deep dish wheels and a big ‘ol aero helmet for you to pull it off. And a gold chain

If you’re referencing the Stanridge bike at the foot of the previous page, it’s American - as is the flag on the left-side-drive track crankset developed exclusively for the USA Olympic Track team by Vision - an American company.

On the other hand, the Colnago Crystal had a very subtle enlarged down tube. Just slightly ovalized...

My Zanc aluminum frame has a very worked-over down tube - oval vertically near head tube and oval horizontally at bottom bracket.

Supposed to be slightly more aero in a velodrome, where you're always turning left.

I've wondered about this. While it is true that the left side (inner side of turn) moves slightly more slowly than the right (outer side of turn), the right side is more shielded from the wind (or, apparent wind, more accurately). I've experienced this many times in fast packs: The inside line on a turn travels a shorter distance than the outside line, so the outside line has to go faster to keep up; but the inside line gets more wind, so you have to work harder than you do on the outside line.

These oversize tubes could be yours.

I sold this bike originally! Client needed a IM Tri bike and back then there no Tri bikes that really fit him, so we designed the Seven for him. Bike was built with campy record and Zipp. The gold was an homage to his Alma matter, I forget which. We needed to customize the front der shims to allow for a band to fit around the seat tube where the lugs were. Geometry was a longer TT than what was on stock Tri bikes back then. Was ridden happily for many seasons.
