BTW, who is Nate Koch? We went to the London 6 day and saw him there, also saw him at previous 6 days, is he a well known sprinter in the US? Another BTW, Trump, wtf?

Koch is a US sprinter that is really fast. I've never seen him race in person. I haven't heard much about him after an initial flurry of stuff. My guess is that track racing got expensive and he had to stop.

We shouldn't talk about politics in any forum except for http://www.bikeforums.net/politics-religion/

It keeps the drama isolated and from bringing down other forums.

As seen at the recent 6-day, he is still racing, and trains at Carson. Since USACycling doesn't have a sprint team, he is kind of on his own. The 6 day organizers love him; not only is he fast, but he is a great showman, which is excellent for the whole 6 day scene. He also does bike fits; he did mine. I don't know for sure, but I bet he will also show up for Berlin and other 6 days.

Sorry Carleton... Thank goodness we can race bikes in circles - if only the UCI didn't keep messing it up!

He likes to dress up

I met him in Carson, an outgoing and nice guy.

DAMN!!! Need to get me some of them but those brits dont like to share

Have had a set of 33cm Alpinas for the last few years, love them but would love more of the "aeroness" of the scattos but wouldn't go any wider than what i have now. I think 30cm scatto/bt/brit style bar would be perfect
