    You know that you want to use a fixed gear for track standing on a flat surface, right? If you are trackstanding that freewheel bike in the pool, you have far better balance than I do I can track stand a freewheel bike for MAYBE 15 seconds.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Any pavement with a slight rise is a good place to learn how to trackstand, that pool isn't a good place
