    The Oreos are only for intra-workout. There will be a post workout bucket of KFC served up by Ryan Bailey himself once we peel you off the gym floor.

    If you can't get a hold of the Vittorias, Conti also makes a set, although they are fully enclosed/circular, so wheel removal from the frame is necessary for installation/removal.

    SS bikes, yes. Track frames, no. Not unless you go custom. It's all chains on the track.

    I'm going to apologize before hand, and I really don't mean to sound like a snob/prick, but I have to ask (to better understand what you want out of your bike). Do you want a decent track bike for...

    Unfortunately, this advice is an oversimplification in applying one concept of training to be all of your training. It's just as bad as training in a 64" gear all the time.

    If you're looking for a track specific bike, to be used only for track racing, then the "sell for something steeper" option is a viable route. I would say it's dependant on fit. If your body type...

    I did have a pair of Gatorskin GP4000s and they didn't ride as nice as the regular version. Could feel that they were stiffer and less supple. I went to Vittorias on the suggestion that they were...

    Never had a problem with Sprinters, but also never rode the gatorskin version. FWIW, the regular versions were used on outdoor tracks and the street for motorpacing workouts.

    OP also doesn't say what rings and cranks they are using. Cheap replacements are still cheap equipment and susceptible to the same tolerances. In my 15 years of track racing and SS/FG riding, this...

    Sounds like the chainring is out of round/machined off center. Cheap chainrings do this.

    It depends on where the spine starts to break form. For me, it's always the "butt-wink" at the bottom because of tight hammies, and this pulls the rest of the posterior chain, therefore throwing off...

    Your fork is probably bent, and you have multiple tubes damaged. The corresponding lugs may also be damaged (bent/ovalized). Look for a new frame unless the sentimental value of the bike is worth...
