    Get the Reynolds. They are nicer wheels than those Ritchey/Zipps.

    No, don't put a fork with a 29mm rake on your bike with a 72deg headtube angle. It will handle very, very sluggishly. Fork rake and head tube angle work against each other to bring a measurement...

    Also I'd forgo an infield bathroom in favor of an infield water source!

    Many track facilities have an underpass to get to an external bathroom, but too few have a tap. It was something of a...

    And there's this one. I want to be happier for Missy. It must be a strange feeling to have a great result because you survive a carnage keirin. This race sort of feels like it's over as soon as it...

    For starters, Baranowski slotted in 5th, got jumped by Volikakis and got a perfect armchair ride to the front of the sprint. Nice. I think he almost missed that...

    No one pedal is riden by most of us. In general, Look Keos, Shimano SPD-SLs, and Speedplays are well-represented.

    Ugh. So true, and well put.

    I've seen bigger. I'd say upper nineties is the low end of large. Middle nineties is still moderate. 93" is small.
