    About 850 will get you new Avanti Pista, if you twist your dealer's arm a bit. Otherwise 900 is the retail price.

    I think the Hillbrick Ryan Bayley Signature is in that range as well.

    Specialized Langster - about 1400, but that's more of a street bike that can be 'trackified'.

    If you can find a Fuji track bike anywhere, apparently its fairly inexpensive compared to the above, but I'm not sure how much. My guess would be about 700 for a new specimen.

    Depending on where you live of course, but theses are some clubs that have a strong track scene (and velodromes)-
    Carnegie Caulfield, Blackburn, Coburg, Brunswick, Northcote.

    That is just off the top of my head so aopologies to any clubs I have left out.

    Track racing is available all year round now to with winter racing at night on the indoor track at DISC in Northcote.
