Sorry to hear about our mishaps.

Out of curiousity, o you feel you are ever at a disadvantage for riding a steel classic track bike and not something like a BT? Hve you ever considered throwing down for something a little more competitive.

Also, how do you accept payment off your site for the frames, etc.?

C'est la vie - That's racing.

Wheels make a huge difference on the track, more so than frame materials.

That crash would have destroyed a carbon frame which you could not repair. You can always straighten or replace tubes on a steel frames.

Competitive is all about being smart and strong - and training VERY hard.

However if you'd kindly deposit $10k into my account I'll pick up one of the LOOK frames

safe riding,

Yep, Ewin is strong and was off 175m. We worked the first few together, caught the front markers, then as big Stu came around I put on the gas, and the rider trailing him clipped my front wheel.

Ewin still rode on sunday for the Brunswick champs.
