    This goes for more than lifting. The act of riding, lifting, working out, making your body hurt, is not what actually makes you stronger (if anything it makes you weaker). Its the trigger I...

    Hard to tell from the upper angle what the rake and geometry is like, I imagine they are pretty similar though.

    Are the components the same? Can you see them in person and see what feels better...

    Good to know. I also see a big drop when I go from standing to seated, something I would like to 'smooth' out a little more perhaps. Looking at it closer it looks like its around 7s in that I hit...

    We were actually pretty close to not getting a permanent track for the PanAm games next summer, the original plan was a temp track for 1/10th the cost. The fear was because Montreal had a permanent...

    sorry I should have been more specific. Not any tire will do, I meant most road slick tires will do and you dont need specific track tubulars. I run old GP4000s clinchers and some vittoria slicks...

    I would view overgear as similar to lifting weights. Its harder/heavier to build strength. Under for speed/form.

    That said I also have a coach that is more into under gearing than over (for just...

    from my experience you can run pretty well any tire you want on indoor wood. Obviously some are faster than others, but Ive had track tires, old road tires and everything inbetween at FCV. If you...

    What is your background other than lifting? Have you been on a bike since you were a kid? I think there is something be gained from simply being on a bike, comfort, fit, etc.

    If you have the time to put in lots of training at the track, that is a good approach yes. We have some really fast guys who literally have never ridden on the road before the track and are pushing...

    From all the data Ive seen, the Casco is not a fast helmet in the pursuit. Like, you are better off with an aero road helmet. Some of the road helmets are testing quite well, like the ugly...

    Whatever track you end up at will likely have rental bikes you can use, and often they are in good shape. I know some regular 3 times a week riders that still don't own a track bike. Id suggest...

    Tread pattern means nothing on a road slick tire, it is there purely for aesthetics (even in the wet).

    Either tire would work fine at either track. At burnaby you may need to 'scrub' your tires...

    Totally agree. I found close to a second off my flying 138 time over the winter and account 80% of that to just technique. I find the 200 track a lot easier anyway, as turn 1 isn't so 'violent'...
