    I was drinkin' scotch.

    I also talked to dating site girl. She seems really down. I wish I could hang out with her, but alas, no money, and she's headed skiing tomorrow.

    That's has semi-track geometry, right? Do you know if that would work for a track that specifically requires track bikes?

    How do they determine something being "specifically track"? Get out the protractor? Look for brake bolt holes?

    I thought most places just required the bike to be brakeless (and otherwise relatively sane).

    I thought newer Pista's were semi. That's pretty cool, though. Have you ridden on a track?

    I think my road bike has more track geometry than my fixed gear bikes...

    That's about right.


    Anyway, the reason I ask is that this just opened. It has an insanely steep bank angle and they require track bikes for safety reasons.

    They changed the geometry for 2009. 2009's are semi track. The one I have is a 2006, which has the same geometry as the Pista Concept.

    Headtube angle on the 2006 pista is 74 degrees, headtube angle on the 2009 is 72.5 degrees.

    It will give you an idea of it, but it won't have anything on the real thing.

    How do you tell the perfect Dateless Losers thread? It evolves into a discussion of bike parts.

    That's pretty cool. The track looks pretty narrow, though. I thought they were usually a lot wider than that.

    They provide Fuji Track/Track Pro bikes. I didn't think the standard Track was super-track-geometry (compared to a Nagasawa or any of the other keirin models). If you have something close, with no brakes and short arms, they might be cool with it.

    Or is that devolves? Ms. MillCreek is taking a nap on the couch along the other side of the room. I will wake her up in about an hour so that we can watch Battlestar Galactica.

    Married life is supposed to be more exciting than Dateless Loser life. Can't you do better than Battlestar Galactica?

    Yes, but we did that this morning when we woke up. And besides, the final 10 episodes of BSG are not to be taken lightly.
