track newb. road gearing versus track gearing
I've never ridden on a track before, but I've been riding fixed on the road for some time. I want to try riding the Kissena velodrome in Queens. On the road I ride ~76 gear inches. You think I ought to gear up a little for the track? I really don't know what to expect. I'm a pretty strong cyclist, but these days I'm more of a diesel engine (i.e. distance guy). I'm an OK sprinter (former BMXer), but I'm probably not a totally badass sprinter. Thats sorta what I want to work on at the track. I have a flip flop hub...so I was thinking about putting a smaller cog on the flip side.
