    Great thread so far, though it is a bit sprinter oriented, of course. Though I wish I could be a big powerful sprinter, I simply don't have the build for it, nor do I live close enough to a track to...

    On the subject of chains, can Pintle chains be considered for racing? Or should those be left for fixie crowd?

    I hope no one minds if I hijack this thread a bit.

    Recently I swapped parts from my Fuji to build up a commuter and as a result, the Fuji now lacks a set of training wheels. I've been wanting to...

    To be honest, I've wanted Omniums for some time now, and their price is a plus. What's putting me off are their flaws and the fact that at an elite level, Suginos can be found amongst all the...

    Maybe it won't make much difference. But I thought it was a cool idea :) . The Omnium with BB would cost me about $160. The Sugino 75 cranks would cost me $166. If I remember correctly, the Sugino...
  6. Thinking of getting some SRAM Omniums

    When I was building up my Fuji, I used parts from my track bike/commuter, including the cheap Shimano BB. It only took a trainer session and a track day before the plastic non drive cup cracked,...

    I have the All City cranks right now. I've bought a lot of things from All City, including my sprint bars, cogs and lockrings, a chainring, and grips. Often their stuff is the cheapest in my shop's...

    To think, almost a year ago I was lamenting the closure of the track program in NH. Now there's an indoor 'drome coming for the east coast! It's still a helluva drive, though.

    25-30 reps and 5 sets is A LOT of volume for anyone. In theory, the amount of time/reps that you're under the weight should translate well into sprint training. However as a workout, it's so much...

    I shall be watching this thread closely.

    Since my local track program ended, I've had to change my goals from a track specific focus, to a more road specific focus. However, I think that if most...

    I too have noticed that the chain doesn't need to be as tight as possible to perform best; on the contrary in fact. It makes sense if you think about it. All of the bearing surfaces in the chain in...

    The cranks I have now are All-City 612s, which accept JIS spindles. They're handsome enough and didn't break the bank when I was building up my commuter fixie into a track racer. At the moment, the...

    New BB suggestions?

    Hey everyone, I've built up my Fuji Track Pro and even raced and done some trainer workouts on it. It rides beautifully and is quite responsive, and I really ought to get some pictures up. However,...

    I was more curious if there were any glaring fitment issues that I didn't notice. I talked with the previous owner a bit and he said I could make it work. Instead of taking the 100mm stem he...

    54cm Fuji Track Pro - Will it fit?

    So I've managed to find a Fuji Track Pro frameset that might be able to fit me. Originally, the current owner had thought it was a 56, which wouldn't have caused any concern to me as that is the size...

    The site seems to suggest that there's some medium frames in stock still. I'm just having a lot of trouble deciding if I want to wait for the Langster, or go for the Affinity.

    Oh wow, that is gorgeous. Even if they were selling them I don't think I'd have the money for one!

    Does anyone have any experience with the Affinity Kissena frames? I'm considering getting one instead of waiting for a Langster Pro. How would they compare (I'm guessing the the Kissena would be a...

    I voted for Miss and Out as both least and most favorite because I usually place well when racing them, but I'm also in all kinds of pain at the end.
