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.

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

Track bikes only.

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.
