    Yeah, more hand positions. Function rather than fad.

    ^ yes. track slack. not worried about hitting a pothole and having my chain fly off. don't get me wrong chains do come off on the track but it's probably a lot less than on the street. yes i need the extra chain for gear changes.

    On mine, the left operates the front brake, the right one operates a bell.

    A clearer picture of what it looks like, plus me with trash bags taped around my legs and plastic bags over my feet, a couple of summits earlier:

    The blue bottle is there because my other normal bottle had suddenly cracked in the sub-freezing temps the previous night. I'd been out of the saddle on the climb (one of six or so on that same stretch of road) for long enough for the snow to accumulate there.
    Bottles aside, the bike has Ritchey drop bars with Shimano brake levers and brakes (yes, two of them... it's a fixie, but it's a long-distances-over-mountains fixie), Open Pro rims with a Phil Wood rear hub and a SON 20R dyno front, T/A cranks with SPD pedals, a 42x16 gear, dyno-powered LED headlight that my better half made, and handlebar bag, saddle bag, and handlebar bag/light mount that I made. My trusty companion for many years.

    Probably just for looks. He's using a lockring and according to Carleton most actual track racers leave them off for quick cog changes. I'd be surprised if it goes on the track. Looks more like a "buy all the nicest parts" build.

    Color yourself surprised.

    Also, lockring use is about 50/50 from what I've seen.

    I use one when I'm out there. Those damn beginner sessions require me to backpedal because nobody know how to maintain speed during warm up

    ugh.

    It's even 50/50 between the supervisors. Mark doesn't run one, but the other guy (can't remember his name) does.
