I really want to get started in racing in my loc velodrome.
I am a 25 y/o guy that lives close to an outdoor velodrome here in sunny South Florida. I have gone to it a couple of times in the morning and used the rental bike (which are not in the best of shape). I really liked it and am interested in getting started. I am on a tight budget right now because I am in the middle of trying to buy a house. I have been looking around on craigslist but a lot of what I see is road bike conversions. Which I know from reading is not the same geometry. So I am not to sure what to do. Should I just keep renting and just get some more time on the track under my belt or should I try to save up for a bike of my own? Is there anything worth buying from bikesdirect?
