Just bought a Fuji Track Pro frame only, and I want to take it to the velodrome
Hey, first thread here.
Anyways, I've been riding fixed for a little more than 2 years, and road for the past couple months on my university's team. I ordered the 2009 Fuji Track Pro frame from Nashbar like a lot of other people, and it's set to ship out in July. I live 5 minutes away from the Encino Velodrome, so I figured I'd try the velodrome over summer.
The first problem is, I don't have a fork for the frame, and I'm on quite a budget. Fuji doesn't sell the forks individually, and it's kind of hard to find a fork with 35mm rake <$300 or so.
The second problem is that I'm switching over my Omniums and my stock Kilo TT wheelset over to the track pro until I get enough money. I'm wondering if this will present any problems?
Also, if anyone has advice on my problems and/or beginner tips with track cycling, I'd greatly appreciate it.
