    Carleton is suggesting a good course of action here. But you can get some meaningful training done on a track bike on the road, especially track specific workouts like starts and very short full-on...

    Plenty of big riders used the Shamal as a front wheel back in the day. It was the go-to wheel for sprinters for a while. Here's Chiappa riding one vs. Gane in 2000.

    Over-geared starts

    What is the consensus on the value of training starts in an over-gear? I had considered it a training staple, but a local coach has challenged that view and suggested that under-geared is more...

    Just ride the track bike at the track. A fixed gear IS really different to a road bike with a freewheel and it will take some time to get used to, so in my opinion you should start as soon as...

    Thanks for the tips, Ethan. Yeah, it's probably light for my capabilities, but with my form as bad as it is it's the most weight I can manage at the moment.
