I remember that! Everyone was asking "what's with the washing machines in behind the bikes?" I believe you mentioned that those were betting terminals.

A couple weeks ago somebody posted a link to a company that makes, among other things, aluminum bars roughly in the shape of Scattos.

I thought it was Selcof, from that back and forth about Planet-X's offerings, but it's not. Can't find the conversation.

Anybody remember?

No, I'm talking about a company that's not Selcof, and that makes an aluminum bar.

Conversation started here and I poked around on their website and found a traditional bend bars in 36, 34, and 32cm - which is crazy. And now I can't remember what company it was.

I thought they were washing machines. I wouldn't have given it a second look had you not commented.

They have the exact same width, drop, and reach as the 37cm Scattos.

I agree that the grip area seems to be too short for holding during standing starts. Maybe they only expect one to hold them forward in the drops?

Does anybody do a corresponding copy of the Look or BT sprint bars?

No, I was talkin' bout a different bar.

I want to use it for my roller for extra resistance

Thanks

Does not exist for normal track hubs as far as I know.

If you want resistance, the easy solution is to lower your tire pressure. Or, if you have Kreitler rollers, you can buy a fan unit for it.

You can also use magnets to increase resistance on rollers. Glue a handful of neodymium magnets to a bar or rod and place it very near to but not touching the rear roller and it will add resistance.

The cycle-ops rollers have this feature built in to them.

Was anyone at Carson this past weekend? I did three sessions, Friday night and the morning and afternoon on Saturday. I'm just curious, I wanted to say "hi" to those of you who might have been there.

BTW, Encino is a fun, funky track. I had a good workout there yesterday.

I own a roller that keirin racer use in South Korea.
So I would probably make something similar to Cycleops magnet or purchase gr8 60t chainring and use with my 12t cog.
