im an addict

I like to build bikes , so i go broke on them
I ordered an eai bareknuckle frame today (!!!! ) for the purpose of beginning track cycling , I ride quite a few miles on road (250-300 weekly)
just wanted some opinions on this frame and the direction I should go with it to get it ready to ride on the track
also I know little about track racing except that it looks fun as hell , anyone have any pointers or what not ?

I weigh around 200 currently and am 6 foot 5 should i worry ?

200 is no problem for a decent cromoly frame and the bare knuckle frames I've seen were pretty nice.
What track is closest to you?

Come on out this Friday - the fall series starts this week and runs for 8 weeks, I believe.

go to www.superdrome.com and check the schedule for development classes. take one of those first (you will need to in order to be able to ride on that track)
there is a fine group of people there who are willing and able to help new riders
