So If u r good enough you will win or u'll be able to be between the upper 5 places using a regular track bike... using normal stuff. After all you dont know yet what it is run a persuit in a track, so probably you will step back after knowing what it is hehehe... I was a Km TT guy and I ran Persuit a few times in my career as a track racer and the truth is that persuit isnt funny at all after the second Kilometer
Oh well have fun
get a bike and win races as old racers use to do... I bet you can do it with out spending a lot of money, the trick is training, not the bike!!!!....
I guess I should just stop freakin' out (it's what I do) and get a frame that can do both mass-start and endurance type races. The Van Dessel seems to do that, from what I've read.
I found that Blue makes this: http://www.rideblue.com/tr250.html
. The seat angle is adjustable apparently, which means one might be able to use it for almost all track events. Looks pretty sweet, even has a wheel cutout. I e-mailed them about price since I couldn't find a single one via internet, but they have yet to get back to me.
But, in all honesty, I'm capable of anything if there are single/pretty women in the crowd.
