    I don't really think that any of the things we're discussing are super critical in the differences they can make. They're really only applicable in situations where you are chasing the next 0.001 of...

    Weight matters for acceleration, but a balance of power transmission/weight has to be taken into account. Light but flexy is at one end of the scale, heavy and rigid is at the other. The key is the...

    lol. A little bit of a delayed reaction on my post. I was referring to Hill's AIS bike. As for the Tiemeyer, much as I like it, that paint job just doesn't go with a headtube that long.

    Wow! I can certainly see that rear triangle being steel. That's really interesting, especially as they had a small nosecone on the headtube. That's a lot of metal in that bike. I would be...

    The problem with sprint events and sprint training is that it takes a long time to move a few racers through the evenings program. It's easy to throw 20+ guys on a track for mass start endurance...

    You can get plenty of good stuff in NA for a reasonable price. I mentioned Velomine above because I've dealt with them before and he builds decent wheels at a great price. If you want a one piece...

    Never heard of it. The front trispoke is oddly spaced at 110mm. Nothing special about the wheel spec. The other spoked wheels have a decent spec worth considering. The mavic rims are wider. I...

    I'm curious to know who made the bike that Darryn Hill rode.

    Any wheel you build now will last him for years to come and I would try to keep that in mind when you build. I've got 10 year old wheels that are still going strong. I wouldn't worry too much about...

    RVI, I'll give you an answer that is befitting of the type of question you originally asked. Whatever works best for you. I know, I'm being an ass and I'll tell you why.

    It's the plastic ones that do this. I've had both PVC and Aluminum drum rollers and only the PVC ones do this. Kinda fun to call someone over while doing a roller session, reach out, touch them,...

    Larger tracks don't necessarily require the short wheelbases that a steeper track bike affords. You can make almost any bike work on any track, but how well will it work? That's up to you to...

    Tracks get faster as they age. The wood hardens and the grain tightens up, creating a smoother surface. Sounds like they may have eased up. I believe Junek designed the track. I don't know if it...

    I know for a fact that they come in a 59cm TT. I used to have a 57.5 TT and the 59 was the next size up. I believe the sizing is 52, 53.5, 55, 57.5, 59, 61? (never heard of one that big).

    I second the idea of Ti dropout plates. I would like them done in the BT style tho, where it's a large metal plate bolted to the frame. I hate those little dropout inserts. The plates are easy...
