But it's fun to confuse people.
I'm looking to actually get on a real lifting regimen, but I'm not quite sure where to start. I think I read somewhere that track cyclists are essentially power-lifters on bicycles, so should a power lifting program be appropriate for a track cyclist?
Yes, a power lifting program would be appropriate. Basically the squat, deadlift, and power clean lifts of a power lifting program.

Is 13.1s a decent time for a flying 200m?
Dear Carleton, I am having a hell of a time finding ~30-40mm carbon clincher track wheels. In your experience, do these just not come as pre-built packages? Custom seems to be the only way to get what I want. Aluminum (Mavic) seems to be the closest thing I can find.
Background: my veeps are boat anchors and I do a lot of climbing/road riding on my track bike and would like something lighter.
Not quite a personal shopping question, more of a "Do you typically see people with this set up?" question.
p.s. your review thread was awesome, thanks
Weren't those Reynolds track wheels clincher?
yeah and good luck finding them. I'm on ebay and allofcraigs every few days looking for a set.
maybe you'll have to settle for something like a mavic ellipse if you want clincher
guy who did the 24 hour ride had a set of those and mavics when he showed up. he was on the reynolds the entire time
Yeah, I'm sure if I actually find them they will cost a pretty penny. I may just try out the Planet-X wheels. Or maybe some ebay china carbon wheels. There are pretty big threads on RBR saying that they're fine. No catastrophic failures with road use, and I would assume that track should be fine.
that guy who makes those mikes bikes videos is always buying carbon wheels from ebay. mbikes.tumblr.com
