    My way of thinking with cranks is as so. Track racing has little to worry about in terms of equipment. So, on the track, where stiffness is king and development is totally...

    Yeah, don't think that he will be the true marker for you. A lot of pro guys go out and just tick over the miles for training in my area.

    I had A23 rims to Ultegra hubs. I really liked the 23mm rims and they do make a difference to road feel. I killed the rear rim after about 3 years, but apparently these were Australian manufactured...
