Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Near where I used to live: San Diego Velodrome
Note: it seems wider, less oblong. Is it?

I was thinking the same thing. I started a similair thread on fixedgeargallery.com and these velos look so cool from the sky.

problem is: high enough resolution image to print. Looks all good on the web but in print, yikes.

yeah - maybe get a PS wiz to fix 'em up - or are they really that bad? If so - collage them or use them as page footers with the page number in the center. Who knows - just some suggestions.
Cool thread though for sure.

did you check the images via terraserver too? They are B/W, but might be better.

Mike Walden Velodrome in Bloomer Park. Rode this one last weekend. 250 meter tracks w/44 Degree banks are freaking thrill rides.
