    How much room do you have from the tip of the valve to the end of the access hole? The Silca 90 is less voluminous than the Hirame, it sits lower on the valve stem, and doesn't have as much on top, ...

    These types still exist? I thought we were done with the immaturity of high school years ago?

    The Hirame is the best one so far, but I've had good luck with the silca adapter as well, and no dremelling required.

    Loose bearings aren't bad, they just have their place. That's typically on the velodrome, and not on the street. There are plenty cartridge bearing bottom brackets out there that fit your budget. ...

    Are you trying to cut the time it takes to get between stoplights by thousandths of a second? That's all it's going to get you. If you ask me, it makes no sense to put a "pimp" part like that on a...

    Just go with a sealed, square taper BB if you're riding on the road. You'll never notice the difference in smoothness (most people can only tell when thye are holding the BB in their hand and...

    So you feel you maximize the 1-3 o clock portion of your stroke better? Do you think you may have given it up somewhere else to get it? I'm just curious, as I've always like to be able to brace...

    It depends. If you're someone who rides with bent arms, like the Venezuelan, or van Velthooven, then it doesn't matter as much. If the reach forward is something that forces you down, then it's a...

    That's a lot of racing during the week. To me it looks like you're not making progress in anything because you're not specifically training anything. Racing is good to develop tactical...

    You mind posting what your typical training week looks like? And how far along in the season are you?

    This was Obree's reasoning for developing the Egg position. The German pursuit team tested it, and it is extremely fast on a single rider, and even faster in formation as the bikes are much shorter,...

    Most people have gone to just cleats. They are secure enough for 95% of riders. Some bigger sprinters will run a strap with their clipless set ups.

    It's a well respected frame. Proper track geo, stiff and light. Most people that try one/buy one are not disappointed. The only complaint I have ever heard about the bike is the stupid insane...

    Was going to ask the same question. I used to have a set of the older ones from about 15 years ago. How do the new ones compare?

    It looks like you can move back on your seat, or move your seat back. Your knee looks to me well in front of your pedal spindle. This would gain you some torso length. Best to post pics with your...
