Who here would support a track bike forum? I talked to Greg and he said if enough people were interested a forum could be started. One day I hope we can work up to a track bike review if track ever makes a resurgence again. Detroit was recruiting people for madison so who knows!!!

Please start a track forum, and take Nick.

Is that grammar and spelling clear enough for you? I don't doubt that Nick has a good heart; I just think he's TIRED!!! I picture him on his porch in 40 years wearing his national champ jacket and telling stories about what could have been.

I contend that being able to see the good in people is another test of one's character. in theory it isn't that hard to do, in practice, it is. too often, we pre-judge people, and whatever they do, we can find something bad to say about it. this has happened to me before. it would seem that you and some other people on the forum have the same problem.
um, before you start criticizing Nick...namir

Check your spelling and punctuation. Anything even remotely valuable you may have to say (which is doubtful at this point) is absolutely negated by your poor grammar, syntax, and diction.

It's hard to take your post seriously.

You may say the same about Nick, but the truth of the matter is this: Nick has a good heart and the best intentions. His sometime language errors are most likely attributable to his neurological injury rather than a bad attitude, whereas you come off like a jerk.

I was wondering why they did not have a track forum.
why not just use the racing forum?tarwheel

Rather than create yet another forum ... make use of what's already there.

Because track cycling/racing is so vastly different than road racing. A lot of things they share in common but some key points vary. And the forum would not just be for racing... it would be dedicated to those who enjoy riding fixed gears/singlespeeds. At least in my vision of it.

would combining the two make sense? in any case, probably a good idea to have a track forum.
key, there is one person who should get off the board, and it is you. you need to get a life instead of automatically flaming people.

Sure, there would be a bunch of disparate posts ranging from the Madison to commuting, but it would be fun. And riders of all single speed bikes seem to the same interest and respect for those who ride on 20 mm tires with no brakes, or a commuter fixie with fenders.

I say go for it.

someday, I'm getting a fixie...weiwentg

...but I got a cross bike instead. well, someday.

sorry, I haven't had a chance to hit the dirt with my surly yet.

I like this idea!!!PODIUMBOUNDdotCA

As consumer review has both mountain bike and road bike forums it'd be cool to incorpate the 2 different types of single speed riding into one forum! Both have so much in common. Just like the racing forum in reality could be shared between the two sites since theres so much cross over.

I shouldn't say 'got' as it will get here around early September if all goes well. it's a goofy looking contraption: a tiny semi-compact with 700c wheels. but I don't care. while everyone is going 'what the hell kind of bike is that????' I'll be blasting by. in theory, anyway. as long as it goes forward and I can shoulder it...

Count me in. I recommend track racing to every one looking to improve their tactical savvy and sprint placement. There is tremendous cross over. Every track night is like a mini tactics clinic.
