    ...for those who wish to get their "Nyack legs", we will be meeting at the center of Columbus Circle 59th/8th tomorrow 9am. It will be a somewhat relaxed ride up and back.

    neh, i gave up on the the frame, I know that I couldn't get it built up in time, especially the wheels, however, im still holding out luck that i may be able to borrow a bike from my store. Otherwise, i'll race my road bike, where I'm quite sure i'll find a fixed partner. That said, are you still goin'?

    I did the practice ride over the weekend and... whoah. Now I need to revise my partner request: I need someone (with a track bike) who's already resigned to being a straggler!

    I'm still going I guess, I just need to find myself a rider with a fixie. BTW: does a fixie with a front brake count as fixie?

    How the hell can you not build up a bike, you have a whole week, come on man, its a track bike, frame, wheel, fork, bar, crank, pedals, chain, that's all you need.

    AFAIK the time trial at the track has to be "legal". Meaning drop bars and no break. Also no quick release.

    Here's the plan, we rig up someone's bike with a thumb screw for the brake caliper bolt and the same for the lever. Then, we disassemble it while we're going down booth memorial, hand it over, and ride straight onto the track.

    hahaha, too true! and yes, if one feels it necessary to rock a brake on the road/city sections they are free to do so.

    We're trying to pull together a few "wild card" fixed riders to team up with those who show up solo. not promising anything yet, though.

    However, if anyone is interested in volunteering for this elite unit, just give a shout in this thread or pm me or cookie.

    I also need a partner, and I have a fixed gear. I'm not sure how fast I am, but I usually beat about two thirds of everyone else. I'm better at street than road or track. Someone who is about the same should parter with me.

    Its not a issue of time, more so money, and part finding. I was too busy buying some new stuff for my scott, i forgot to leave a little on the side for my cannondale track bike.

    ah, and besides, when i did that track racing series at prospect park, i didn't do so hot, so i'm not too anxious to build her up anyway.

    Come to think of it, i didn't do too hot in the cat 5 races at prospect park either, but that is besides the point...

    Anyways, im goin' i'll be roadin', and additionally, i'll be riding from brooklyn to the start, so if any fixed ridin' guys want to meet up, on race day, ride a bit to the start see if our pace is par with each other, let me know.

    Additionally i'll be doing alot of riding this week, i got alot of gear i want to try out/break in c.p, so if anyone cares to join me for a few laps or so, let me about that too, maybe this way i'll find a partner before race day.

    Lastly, im lookin' to win, so if you have the same intentions, then im the one to talk to, if your goal is to come in second, slvoid is your man

    I think I'll also need a partner with a 2x4 to smack jimbo upside the head while we're heading back from nyack.
