    Everybody I know who has used gatorskin tubulars has found them to be a much crappier ride even than modern Sprinters... and not particularly flat resistant, to boot.

    Last night at the track we ran a Ten Mile Final. I view this as a quintessentially American event, and at a lot of tracks, it's timed and the track keeps a record of the fastest event. So it's a...

    I train like a crit racer. I'm a meh cat 2 crit racer, and a decent cat 2 enduro. A lot of my weeks wind up being about 12 hours, with a couple as many as 15 when I'm loading up in the spring. Once I...

    Thanks! No secret sauce here. I was on a 93 (48x14) for the scratch and points races, and a 92 (51x15) for the madison and elimination. That's within a range of being pretty similar to each other,...

    Oh man.
    We've had an influx of new racers at our track - new racers who are new to racing via track racing. It's so funny to see them race crits and be like, "Man, it's chaos out there, everybody's...

    Some context that a friend shared with me:

    Wiggins' kilo average was 1:06. the kilo WR is 56-seconds. He did 10-sec over that - for an hour.

    Yeah, the Bergstrom one is pricey - but it's done in small batches by one fellah, made in the usa and all that stuff - and I suppose the point is that $Quarq+Bergstrome < $SRM. I don't know much...

    it sounds like the sweetspot for track PMs are 110bcd quarqs with a 110->144 Bergstrom Technologies adaptor. that winds up being a lot cheaper than an SRM. i know one person who has a Rival Stages...
