Playz, Hi!

I've been following. CONGRATULATIONS!!! That's outstanding!

With that time on a 142 meter track I'm pretty sure your speed was 35.5 miles an hour! You rock!

You've been doing the mileage and hours of riding, learned the technique, and built up your ferocity to win. Track record, girl, you're the one that holds it, again, Congratulations!

I'm excited for you!



Liz

Old Skool fer sure!
I had it kicking around and it fit-it's got a couple of good parts on it, like the Record track cranks in 165, the King headset, Flite saddle, track bars and a flask cage for my Surly flask. heh heh. I just put on a bigger cog so it's actually pretty good for getting around on the hills we have here, the brake is a must here too.

That's awesome, playz. You aren't gloating at all. That's a tremendous accomplishment!

I can answer that:

It depends on how fast you can spin yer legs round! I've done it in a 49x15, 53x16, 50x15 and a few others that didn't work so well when the jumps happened.

I'm guessing since she's still on a rental that she's got the 49x15 setup goin.

I useta race with a former British Olympic Gold Medal winner/Japanese Keirin circuit dood/etc and he had an 'overdrive' in his legs. Used the same gears as the rest of us, just had a 'turbo boost' on top of it. I'm STILL unsure how he did it!
