    My 2005 New Year Resolution...

    The Track Cycling Forum is going to be the shi*. I'm tired of talking about conversions and fixies. Track bikes rule! No drilled brakes, bottle mounts, saddle bags, non-track end dropouts, fender eyelets, or frame pumps allowed!!!

    Track bikes only.

    seems like you answered your own question there pal.

    too bad you're not cool enough for school.

    Funny how all that doesn't stop you from having fenders on your track bike.
    And yes, I know they are SKS raceblades and you dont have eyelets.
    Although I seem to remember you trash-talking fenders once before as well... ah yes there it is.

    Last time I saw your ride outside Filter, it was looking great, although it seems practicality may be winning the fight

    I feel your pain but the part with the brake hole... I don't ride with brakes and haven't done it since the mid 80s. I have my keirin frames with holes in the fork crown and I don't think I am going to fill them. I don't think it is going to make me less of a track rider or my bike less of a track bike.

    I owed over 25 track bikes and own over 6 now and counting.

    You need to rethink what you want on the forums..

    S/F,
    CEYA!

    so wait do you even ride on the track? or have you ever?

    I'm not attacking you, I'm just curious I mean I only just started so that doesn't really make me a track rider just yet. I just think it would make this attempt to further alienate yourself from the rest of the cycling comunity a little funnier.
