    Thanks for the input, guys! I'll be ordering the Alpina shortly. :)
  2. Fork replacement needed - suggestions?

    Ugh.

    So in a totally uninteresting way I cracked the fork on my 09 Fuji Track Pro. The crack runs almost all the way around the blade of the fork, the paint is chipping and applying a bit of...

    I'm curious what tubulars would be appropriate for racing primarily at Kissena and T-Town. I'm guessing whatever tire would be appropriate for those tracks wouldn't necessarily be suitable for Forest...

    Interesting. I'd had no idea that the pattern I tightened the bolts could have any effect. I usually do it in a star pattern because I'd heard that I should, but never knew why. Lately I've been more...

    No, it's tighter than I've seen a lot of people keep their chains, though not so tight as cause undue friction. Would this tightening and loosening of the chain accelerate wear on the cogs and rings?

    I got a few nice shots of my bike on its new wheels from Velomine when I went to the Forest City Velodrome this past January.

    What is wrong with my drivetrain?

    While spinning my bike on the trainer, I noticed a lot of 'play' in my chain. At first, I saw that it gained and lost slack with each crank revolution:

    Bodyweight: I'm 5'10" and just under 160 lbs at the moment. Contrast that to last year when I was ~185/190. I'm focusing more on being an enduro, since it's more useful for road and 'cross racing. I...

    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...
  15. 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,...

    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 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...
