Silly wheel question
What's the rule-of-thumb for using road wheels on the front of a track bike? Is there a difference beyond using nuts instead of quick releases? Is using a quick release frowned upon for some other reason?
I ask because I just bought a shiny new track frame, and I've assembled all the parts except the wheelset. I've got a passable rear from a street fixed gear, but I'm wondering if I can get away with using the front from my rolfs until I buy a dedicated track wheelset...
Nevermind - just found the answer in an old post... Thanks anyway.
