Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

It's customary anywhere and called a 'bike throw'. Basically helps you get that last added umph when you've gone completely all out and the race is being determined by less than a wheel's radius.

This is my first time watching a track race, and that was pretty cool. But I was like whose the DB on the motorized Schwinn? I guess that's the pace bike?

Wow. I've never watched one of these before. That was wholly impressive. Those bikes didn't look super space-age like the ones in the first two links, but I'm sure they were. I could not believe how big that German guy's legs were!

Yeah, the spacecraft thing was still a couple years off. Crazy to think that race was nearly 20 years ago...

I watched a couple more, including one from 1982, and it looked like they were racing on steel bikes. Have the times and records changed dramatically since all the super-tech stuff was introduced? Just wondering how much difference it makes in seconds or minutes, or whatever.

a bike throw puts the bike in front of you. you don't wheelie your bike in a 'bike throw'

I'd assume since they mentioned his "pumped up" East German at the start that he's on steriods.

Yeah but they also mentioned weight training, which makes your legs big (aside from the actual sprinting, of course), and which is also referred to as 'pumping up', or, if you're a schwarzenegger fan, 'pumping YOU up'.

im pretty sure it wasn't an intentional wheelie. it looked like a bike throw. but light bike + extra hard last few pedal strokes + bike throw = weight towards the rear with extra hard push = wheelie.

obviously not...

try harder...you must be circling your garage. learn how to ride a bicycle, then come and show your appreciation for what is a certified sprint wheelie

I'll let you bump the thread next
