    Had my first track session today, at Manchester Velodrome. It was a 'taster' session where you have a bike and a coach for an hour and get to know the basics of track riding.
    When I first turned up there were two people stood at reception, Lizzie Armistead and Jason Kenny... Went through and saw the GB Women's pursuit team practicing changes which was cool.
    My hour on the track was amazing! The hire bike was great (A Dolan aluminium) and fitted me perfectly. The track was awesome and my mate took some photos (I'll post tehse when I get them). It was also weird seeing the GB team milling around the centre of the track waiting for us to finish. Chris Hoy was doing pieces to camera whilst the rest of the team there (about 15 of them) chilled out.
    When they started it was a sight to behold, Jamie Staff and Chris Hoy riding along, sat up, arms folded chatting whilst they warmed up. It was a motorpacing session and all the riders went in a perfect, uniform line. Very disciplined and accurate...
    Sorry for posting this on this thread but hey-ho.
    I have booked my next session already, I loved it! I'm lucky to only live 40 mins away from the velodrome

    It was supposed to be set up as more of a points race/Madison bike, but I never raced it and I'll have a new bike next year when I do get to ride more.

    IRO Angus
    Custom blue Alpha Q fork
    Dura-Ace cranks, rings, cogs
    Izumi Model V chain
    No-name stem and seatpost until I feel like upgrading
    Mavic/Surly training wheels

    Not it's pretty much my training bike. I'm able to ride at least 45 miles comfortably on it.

    looks good.

    Jamie Staff is a legend, he is massive in the legs hey? totally cool guy too. The power numbers he makes is amazing. He was world champion in the kilo at his only 2nd world cup event, or something crazy like that. I think his first ride in competition was a 1.03.

    Yes you are very luckyto live 40 mins away from Manchester Velodrome.

    About the same time for me from Dunc Gray in Sydney. I have 2 outdoor ones more or less on the way there too.

    They're top-tube protectors. Because track bikes have no cables, it's easier for the bars to spin around and dent or ding the top tube, so the protector goes right where the bar would norally hit.

    Erytropoietin, really nice Guchi and stem!

    Any particular reason why you went with the Aero instead of the Team?

    My beef with grips like that has always been that you can accomplish the same thing way easier just by wrapping the whole bars with tape.

    Nice bike though. Those are webbed lugs up front, yeah? Close up pics?
