    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 ?
    Yep, it's sad. Local cycling around here does deserve better. But there's always that "not invented here in Texas" inbreed attitude to deal with as well which stops progress.

    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
