    That’s not a track bike archetype, it’s an unholy postmodern chimera, archetypal track bikes have track bars or sometimes cowhorns and are ridden on a banked wooden track.

    Sgt. – its not intended to be an archetypical “track bike,” but an archetype for the notion of the vélo flâneur. Indeed, this is not set up for the velodrome, with straight bars and all. But it is a track bike nonetheless (judging by the geometry and rear fork ends). As you’re sure, track bikes are commonly ridden on the street, along with “fixie” conversions of road bikes. For what its worth, I ride neither.
