this may be a silly question but why would someone with a bike like that (latest technology) still use clips? I always thought clipless was better, but maybe they both have advantages/disadvantages or just personal preference.

Why is this not UCI legal? Not that I really care but just curious. BTW, I talking about the anchor.

The UCI has very specific rules about the profiles and tube size ratios. If anything if the least bit "off", the bike is deemed illegal. The rule was adopted in 1999 I believe as a response to the breaking of the Hour Record by Chris Boardman, among other things. Bikes by Cervelo, Trek, and others didn't follow those rules, so

Well the main disadvantage of clips and cleats is that you have to loosen the strap to get your foot out and then tighten it again to get your foot back it. On the track thats not such a big deal since there are never unexpected stops and you can always lean against something while putting your foot in.

A very small minority of track racers are afraid of pulling out of clipless. National level sprinters can but I really doubt anyone else is strong enough to pull out of maxed out SPD-Rs. Alot get around this by attaching straps to their clipless pedals but some just use clips and cleats instead.

I once pulled out of a pair of looks ( both shoes at the same time) and skidded to a stop Zabel-style. Who says wathing race videos is a waste of time.
BTW my cleats were f-ed anyway.

It's because they already made bikes called "Bridgestone" but now americans think Bridgestone's are tires for cars.

Does that Anchor have a quill stem? Sort of odd looking on a modern looking track bike like that.

In track racing, you want to have as much power as you can. Clipless pedals are not guaranteed that your shoes will stay in. Too many riders clip out with a hard pull.

Straps and clips guarantee you this.

That Park Tool repair stand is crazy.

Makes scense though for those crazy aero carbon frames with no place to clamp with the regular stands.
