    I believe that yours are solid, have texture, and are not replaceable (no screws). Your dropouts are better.

    Plus, I make quite a lot of torque (body weight + squats, haha). Most people wouldn't have an issue with pulling the wheel.

    Otherwise, the frame is great. But, my Tiemeyer is actually stiffer on standing starts.
    Nice Carleton - I look forward to meeting you in a couple of weeks

    Yeah Carleton I raced it last night. 40 lap points race and it felt really solid. Just getting used to the geometry and whatnot it handles so much better than the GT Pulse I was riding. Can't wait to see how things unfold over the next few weeks!

    craigslist Van Dessel with some pro's closet wheels. I'd like to pick up some nicer hoops during the offseason, better stem, seatpost and switch out saddles .... so basically its what I had in the parts bin. I have really enjoyed the track this season though and plan to stick with it. Plan to swing by Burnaby in a few weeks

    My beloved Bridgestone Anchor, next year I would like to put the original track fork on it to match the frame, this build has a fork I got from a local shop that is basically a Flite 100 fork without branding in gloss black, the original fork is lighter (not that that matters at my level) and as stiff as the rest of the bike. Right now I feel like my skill level is far below the level this bike is at.

    I am not interested in 36 spoke wheels and feel like I can slum it with Phil bottom bracket and hubs. I would like to get a Jaguar Stem when I put the orignal fork on it.

    Nice. I got a 15t in the rear.

    Right now im using the stock 48t chainring that came with my ominums, which is a little low. Ill keep it until I get to the B's and then get a 50 or 51t.

    at Bromont, Quebec.....

    I built this bike up from a second-hand frame; Dura-Ace hubs 32/28, HED C2 rims, Omnium cranks 165, Thomson seatpost and stem, Fizik saddle, Ritchey road bars, Vittoria Corsa Evo Cx's. Stem rise and shallow drops for my old neck. And to be able to ride without looking OVER my glasses.

    Yesterday was my third session on the track, after 2 previous classes; my first time alone, just doing laps, some accelerations, getting a feel for it. I ended up riding 42 km. At the first class, I completely wore myself out going too fast all the time, simply because I didn't know how slowly I could ride without falling off the bank. I brought my computer with me to the second session and right away was able to relax, feeling the easier speed, able to accelerate appropriately. This third time, I just wanted to get more of the feeling of the track into my bones....

    Going slow on the banks was always my fear first time around. I always felt like the bike was going to slip right under me
