With an older French bike check the bottom bracket and headset. French threading and sizes can be hard to replace so know what standards it uses.

The narrow SRM mount fits scatto bars with a pro vibe stem if you run the bars off center by about an eighth of an inch. Not enough to notice once you forget that you move the bars.

Cervelo stems come with a glue in tube instead of an expander to reinforce the steerer. I put a tube down a fork that was overly flexible and it stiffened up, also allowed use of a 1" star nut...

The Zipp Super9 and Sub9 are about the same width. The more common 900 is narrow and will fit anything.

There is a max slope in the rules but you need to be pretty silly to break it (like the small front wheel) - UCI limit is that the top tube has to fit in a 16cm horizontal box. In practice for most...

There seems to be the one really good day just before coming down with a cold. Not sure if it the effort that brings on the cold or just the bodies reaction to the virus starting to react.

For the new track I suspect it is saying UCI rules are in effect at all times (insurance?), it also keeps people looking ahead. We have taken computers off bikes in intro sessions to keep people...

1" aluminum bar zip tied to the saddle rails. 2 cuts (angled to match rail angle) and some drilling for the zip ties - total about 10-15 minutes. I drill extra holes to allow zip tying the garmin...

The Kinlin xr270 is a rim that is reasonably light and aero and will not get blown around. 24-28 spokes should be more than enough for a junior - I am well past junior weight and 28 spokes are...

The slowtwitch consensus on shoe covers is the same as for aero helmets - that it depends. Sometimes slower sometimes faster. Depends on the shoe, fit and material. Helmets also depend a lot on...

It has worked fine for me for a couple of years now, but I am not putting out 2500 watts on starts. Easy to remove to swap chains. Since it is short if not fastened a quick spin after mounting...

What is wrong? The numbers look good for a 27" wheel size which will be a few percent off an actual wheel size. The calculation for rpm to speed in the sheet is gear inches * pi * rpm * 60(min...
