Ohh, and I forgot to mention it, but as I rode toward the bench to answer my cell phone, I didn't un-clip quick enough and ended up on my arse ! LOL

Ha ha, 48x14 is what I had my fuji street track bike geared to for a while last fall. It IS crazy. Going straight wasn't too bad. Wind and hills were devilishly difficult to handle though.

48x14 for a newbie it is too much gear. He is not trained to move that gear faster enough, not wonder trackers are masive hehehe... and 48x15 wont be enough gear for racing seriously, the other guys will put 50x15 that is the regular gear an adult or a junior uses.. so go ahead ford... u can do it

Dude I almost went to miami 3 weeks ago.. darn..! well next time I think...
