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)

Hong Kong track bikes

A friend of mine is going to HK for a week and has offered to scope out track frames and parts - I have no idea if there's a track scene in HK but if so does anyone have any idea where to look?

It's illegal to ride bikes on the road in the city center there right?

Some places to check out:
Outdoor velodrome - 25 Yuen Wo Road, Sha Tin, New Territories
Indoor velodrome being built in Tseung Kwan O

The outdoor velo is pretty nice but the new one is gonna be awesome. There is definately a "scene" (hell I think there is ascene for everything and anything in HK) but its definitely an upper crust type thing. At least that was my experience when I rode over there.
