    It will definitely have provisions for a front brake. I don't tend to use it much, but I've been VERY happy it's been there a few times in the past couple of years.

    Thanks for the input!

    It will be used primarily on the streets in city traffic, but as far as I can tell, most things about true-track set-ups apply well in this riding too. I will soon be moving...

    Low Spoke Count Carbon Track Wheels?

    Has anyone used low-spoke track wheels or carbon track wheels for city riding? Potholes, rolling over curbs, and all? Durability issues? Experience?

    BB30 vs. GXP & Q-Factor

    So, in theory BB30 setups are able to have a lower Q-factor than GXP because the bearings sit inside the frame. Does anyone know if this is true in practice? Would it affect chainline then as well?

  11. Lynskey Cooper BB30 + ENVE 2.0 Tire Clearance

    I must have been too idealistic to think one set of wheels would cut it. This seems to solve a lot of problems real quickly, gearing and weight.

    Thanks :)

    What is racing called if you're on a team (not the A-class), the team has sponsors, do 100km races, but only do it a couple times a year?

  16. Poll: The "Do everything" Bike! /// POST YOURS, HELP WITH MINE

    Thanks!

    He measured it, it's GXP as needed, and dropped the price to $150. Win-win.

  18. How can you tell the difference between a BB30 and GXP crank?

    Hey all,

    So, someone is selling a SRAM Red crankset sort of near me for $170, pretty much brand new. He doesn't know if it's a BB30 or GXP model though, and the internet is letting me down on how...

    23c-25c for city riding. I'm like 140lbs. I find individual tires make a difference too. My 23c Fyxations are more comfortable than my 25c Panaracer Duro PTs were.
