Rock Lobster track, Colnago Dream, Ti Paramount, Litespeed Vortex compact, Santa Cruz Blur, Bianchi cyclocross...always wanting more...
Anybody here from/visit Asheville? I'm going riding there for a few days in early June and was wondering if any of the shops are fixie/track friendly...I'm not taking my track bike as there is way too much road and mtb (Tsali/Pisgah) riding I want to do there, but I always visit local shops and would love to find one that knows fixed gear. Thankx in advance.
You should take your track bike because they have a velodrome. Well actually they call it the 'Mellodrome' because it is a converted old car race track and the angles are not too steep. But they race bikes there so it's cool. I am really bummed, sort of, because I will be in Alaska when they have there track championships June 18. You should check it out. http://www.mellowdrome.com/
Its a nice town. Lots of hippies, but its a great town to ride around in. Right downtown on the main street there is a bike shop just like a block south of the big phallic pointy thing at the center of town that stocks track bikes. Seem pretty nice too. I didnt get to check out the mellodrome, but it seems pretty cool.
The sister shop of one of my favorite shops here is down there. I don't know if they stock track stuff down there, but if their place here is any indication you'll meet some friendly people there. It's called biowheels
I lived in asheville for a month. Biowheels is a bunch of pushy jerks (from my encounters and many others). Go to probike it's in west asheville it's near the mellowdrome (ps, it's a sweet track, very shallow turns).
if you go to the mellowdrome, and are into burrito's go to the Lucky Otter, great burrito's, the white trash bbq is amazing.
