Track Cycling: Velodrome Racing and Training Area - rush hour on the track
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
So, I'm going to start track classes in week or so. I ride a rush hour and was wondering if anyone else here does the same. If so, how do they do on the track? I know they have more road-ish geometry but will it be something that I should worry about? I plan on getting a new frame in the future, anyway. But I just wanna make sure it's not gonna completely suck until I do.

No, it'll be perfectly fine to ride on the track.

No problem. Nobody else posts in this subforum, so I might as well help someone out.

You'll be fine. I saw some kid on a stock Rush Hour ripping **** up at Hellyer last year.

Yeah, I had a friend who did his last two seasons on his Rush Hour, in addition to commuting and sandwich delivery. It's a good bike and will cut it just fine at the track.

Ditto, it's a decent bike. I had a very successful track season with mine. I did upgrade the wheels halfway through the year.
It's not the bike, it's the rider. You may be better served on another bike, but it won't make as huge a difference as most people would like to think.
i figured as much. i'm not assuming i'll be way better with another frame but i wanted to make sure the thing doesn't suck on the velodrome. thanks for the input fellas.
