    From my perspective, there's plenty of potential for income from use. T-Town manages to have good crowds for bigger events, and it's around an hour away from Philly. A track in/near Boston would be...

    Haha, that's what Bostonians did in the first place! Most of the city should be under water. Maybe the velodrome could be on a giant barge? :P Interestingly, we do have a few buildings that were...

    One of the bigger issues of a velodrome in the Greater Boston area isn't so much expense, it's land. I've lived in the 'burbs of Boston all of my life, and when I raced at the track in New Hampshire,...

    For what it's worth, Londonderry *was* my home track for my first season of track racing in 2012. It's a go-kart track that was repurposed into a 333m mellowdrome and there was an exceptional program...

    I've heard it called pursuiter's lung but I prefer track hacking. We had our season opener at Kissena on Sunday and there was a lot of it going around.

    Thanks carleton and Quinn!



    And given that I'm 5'10" and 155#, I probably won't have to worry too much about stiffness :D

    This has probably been asked and answered elsewhere, but I can't seem to find it. How do Cometes compare aerodynamically to the bevy of Zipp discs?

    Just curious, would you consider Fuji's track offerings to have flaws?

    WYC, I think your hometrack is Kissena from what I gathered in other posts? I practice wherever there's space. In the infield as queerpunk said, the paved area between the parking lot and the track,...

    While I don't know how long your commute to the track is, I'm very confident that it's not as long as mine. 225 miles, around 4 hours. One way. :(

    I'm watching the Madison right now, it looks like the adjustable retention device on the back of his helmet broke.

    For those looking to watch the geoblocked UCI replays on YouTube, I'm using...

    +2 I think there shouldn't be any hard and fast rules in regards to tire pressure, given the variables involved. Surface, weight, and preference all play a role.

    When I got my tubulars, I thought...

    I didn't imagine anything! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1WouikrNOB0

    I'm also wondering if they'll also have live power outputs as was utilized during the Six Day races last year.

    I could swear there was a Revolution series race wherein they had mic'd up and put a camera on one of the Team Sky riders. Am I imagining things?

    Damn, that's really handsome. There's a tailor right in my hometown, I wonder if he'd be able to make something like this for not a lot of money. Barring that, I've been looking at tri bags. Does...

    +10,000. I hate schlepping all my stuff from the Kissena parking lot to the infield. I've been meaning to design a bag to carry all of my stuff. How to construct it, I'm not so sure...

    Insightful commentary, Carleton. Speaking of which, who is this new commentator? I can't say I'm a fan yet, but maybe he needs some more experience in the position.

    I like using doofy spin bikes at the gym for warmup for lifting weights. It's nice to see what my cadence is, because I'm old school and none of the bikes I own have any kind of telemetry. Otherwise,...

    For a mass start and cold/wet ride lid, I've been considering the Evade for some time now. Looks are of course subjective, but I prefer it to the Air Attack, my next consideration. I'm curious where...

    I went and tried the grip tape, and does indeed chew up the tires. But it also works very well! I did a few sprint intervals, and the tire afterwards was smooth, warm and sticky. It seemed to clean...
