    FWIW my on the bike rpm increased when I stopped worrying about "full circles" and just concentrated on high rpm pedal smashing (all quad).

    I think my best was 218~220rpm on the rollers?

    When I was being coached, we had zero prescribed hill work... like ever. Power was built in the gym.

    I agree, fixed gear sprint work on the streets is pretty sketchy.

    Cost of living out here is really dumb, something to consider before moving.

    Average rent of a decent 1br/1ba place on the peninsula is just under 3k/mo. More if you want to live in SF.

    I remember the first time I used a disc at Hellyer. Then I tried a Disc and 5 spoke. Pure madness. It was so fast. The disc makes maintaining speed so much easier.
