I've just had two seasons running of my best times in my life of 200's, and I'm more convinced than ever that doing a fast 200 is voodoo.

That seems to be the situation here, too. Maybe this is just so they can use the same jig/standard as they do at road races? Do they even check bikes for this at road races? It's been over 20 years...

Was there any justification given? This official said there was a rule change, but as far as I can tell, that is untrue. This is gonna play havoc with the position of 100% of the sprinters I know.

They're just old fashioned metal 35cm Nitto AA125's. Light and stiff enough for me, but I'm no gorilla.

I liked the transitions there too. It's very similar to a Japanese 400m track, minus about 5˚ banking, I would guess. Absolutely hated riding Hellyer. I never got along with that shallow, heavy track.

If you have some clincher training wheels use them at a lower pressure. It will be really not fun. Weirdly just what the road world thinks as the fastest set up is just terrible on rollers.
