That is a great idea. The new direct drive trainers (Wahoo Kickr / Tacx Neo / etc) mitigate the wheel slip problem completely - my Neo can handle power outputs of up to 2200W, which is more than...

Chris, I'm in a somewhat similar position to you in that I'm fairly new to track - started about 18 months ago and have now got through the 4-stage accreditation at Manchester to enable me to race/do...

Does anyone have any experience of Mavic 3G wheels (trispoke, early 90s by the look of them) as track wheels? There seems to be a set going for a reasonable price and I imagine they were Mavic's...

On the basis that there isn't a "Michael Gleazer" racing in the World Cup at the moment, I assume he probably does.

He is a beast though. Muscles in places where I don't have places, or any...

Thanks - I saw the previous threads but you've largely confirmed what I took from those info-wise. I suspect that one of the Rotor SRMs might be the way to go (not least because it goes with a...

What width are your current bars? I have a set of 35cm Scattos and think they're great - the narrow width and the forward sweep of the bar does alter the feel quite considerably from a straight bar,...
