    i just remembered youtube can let you watch stuff at .25 speed. so upon closer review:

    the VZ rider overtakes while still in the lane, and in fact he just slightly turns himself back downtrack -...

    I've been happier with the BB that comes with the SRAM Omnium - I removed some of the seals, and got a lot less drag as a result.

    It wasn't drag that I could feel while riding - just drag I could...

    It's hard to tell if there's actual contact. From the way they both react it LOOKS like there's contact, but I don't see the contact itself. And, i suppose it could be argued that the sprint wasn't...

    oh yeah def not track cycling. not cyclocross, either - cx is about mixed media.

    It really seems like the strategy is "stay with the front group, make clean exchanges, and try not to crash."...

    the vast majority of racing-oriented track stuff is 144. Very old Campag stuff (early 70s and before) used 151bcd. In the 2000s, Miche made "track cranks" in 135 bcd, and iirc only them and TA made...

    Aight so you've probably seen the movie Breaking Away and you've probably heard of the Little 500, a bike race - sort of - held at Indiana University every spring. I knew of it but not much about it...

    That's such a good visual example of it - at 10 seconds, Hoy jumps to hold the front and keep a surge behind him. By 15sec, everybody starts settling in and waiting for the next thing, but by 17sec,...

    When I raced at Kissena, I won races due to that divot in the lane in turn 4 - somebody sprinting in the lane hits that, their wheel kicks outward, and they back off of their sprint just enough for...

    Some people have it backwards, yeah.

    Rake and headtube angle work against each other to keep the trail measurement in a good zone. Reducing rake increases trail. Reducing headtube angle reduces...

    That's such a good keirin. It doesn't really heat up until 1.5 to go. It looks like Varnish and the two riders in red make the first move, but they're dummy moves. Vogel's is the first real one - Guo...

    I notice a lot of entry-level racers doing things without knowing why: "You've got the best sprint in the field - what were you doing on the front with 3 laps to do?" "Uh... I dunno..."

    Carleton's post is well-reasoned. I do most of my winter training on a trainer for many of the reasons he points out.
