Seems to be a thread for road/winter/CX/mountain bikes, but none for track!

Just picked mine up on the weekend and am chuffed with it!

So go on, show us yours!

    All are very nice bikes.

    Alan, what Pro-Lite model are those? Tub/clincher? Did you weigh them?

    Cheers

    They are tubs, nothing else comes close to the ride IMHO. They are called "Rosa", and the weight according to the spec is 812g for the front and 920g for the rear.

    Schon! Wo findet dieses Film statt? Koln?

    Ist diese Piste das ganzes Jahr im Betrieb?

    My simple Dolan. Nothing special but clocked up about 7 wins on the 3 times I've ever been to track league

    And here's the (borrowed) bike I used in the national IP champs last year. Was pretty pleased with 3:38 considering I'd never done an IP before and never ridden an indoor track until 1 hour before the start (do not recommend!)

    New frame is or order, so will sell off this frame next year when it actually arrives!

    @ Pokerface - interesting top tube in that frame. Any reason for that, rather than it taking a straight line and angled more downwards?

    I dunno. You'd have to ask the designers at Look! But angled top tubes are common on a lot of bikes. More so road ones than track ones.

    The new Look L96 I'm replacing this one with has a straight top tube though.

    Thanks Paul 8v, ive been through a lot recently (if you check my Stevens cx bike i explained some of my story there) i always tell people i have it there to remind me that when my legs and lungs start burning and my body starts hurting that i have been in much worse places and much worse pain. I intend to get another one made in the future for one of my other bikes :) Can buy them from here http://www.kapz.co.uk/

    Time pedals on the track? Are they the RXS? If they're iClics don't you have trouble with the amount of float when sprinting?

  • Time pedals on the track? Are they the RXS? If they're iClics don't you have trouble with the amount of float when sprinting?

    They are RXS carbon ones and so far 5 seasons indoor and out door they have been fine.

    If I was an out and out sprinter I would look at straps as well. and or different pedals.

    Explains it. I'm a die-hard iClic/Xpresso fan but I wouldn't risk them on the track!
