    People tend to go shorter on the track. It's a bit more comfortable at higher cadences.

    Some people will tell you that 170s or shorter are necessary to avoid pedal-strike on the bankings, but...

    S75 chainrings are very good.

    As far as other workout stuff goes - squat jumps or other leg-based plyometrics are helpful.

    Well, I finally beat one of my big rivals in a head-to-head enduro race. It was a 15km scratch and a small field, fewer than 10 1/2s, including a newly-upgraded dude with a hell of a sprint and since...

    For the most part, yeah. Stack and reach are helpful measurements, too, since sometimes track bikes have high BBs or shorter-than-ordinary head tubes that can obfuscate some measurements.

    Oh, and, the facility at the Giordana Velodrome is pretty nice. Concrete stands, there's a nice fully-enclosed tower with an elevator and everything; there's no crossing the track, you take an...

    Yup, Baranowski never looked like he was going to get beaten. When I have some time I'll upload some crappy smartphone video of the keirin final, and some other...

    I'm still trying to figure out whether or not I raced the Marymoor GP points race in a 48x14 or a 15.
    I felt waaaaaaay undergeared for the race.
    And it's possible that I had a 15 on there... But...

    I remember seeing a picture from a euro six-day, of a mechanic's stand. 14, 15, and 16-tooth cogs each had a tooth painted a certain color, so at a glance it was easy to tell which the 14, 15, and 16...

    well.... what do you mean "good"?

    i'd say that where you are, with the gear you are using, you're in a pretty good spot.

    i love that video clip.

    yeah, going long on somebody is usually called "kilo-ing" them (even though it's 750m, not 1000). there's definitely no rule against it - the only pacing rules are that the...

    I did a practice sprint tourney today, and in my 2nd flying 200 (the first was kind of a wash), I hit 12.08 seconds. My goal as per this thread was 12.13; my actual goal is 12.0. I'm confident that...

    when i was young and dumb i used to go on killer rides a day or two before race day, thinking that if my body was used to THAT then i'd be stronger for the race.

    absolutely no sense whatsoever...unless race day doesn't matter and sticking to a squat regimen with a future goal in mind matters.

    rake is a distance, not an angle. it's measured in millimeters, as is trail (which results from two things: rake, and headtube angle (which IS measured in degrees, obviously)).
