Vittoria Pista Speed looks like it's pretty available in 19mm. I saw it on Pro Bike Kit and others just now.

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.

I don't think the extra width gains you much on the track, unless your track is extremely bumpy (may be the case in the US). I think the bigger concern for trackies is the aero profile of tire width...

Well, I'm opening your app every time I train on the bike, whether at home or outside. Great applications, and I only use "dumb" trainers. Thank you Carleton!

Neither are ideal, in my opinion. The BMC seems like a converted road TT frame and has a pretty low bottom bracket, and feedback I've heard on the Cervelo is that it's one of the least stiff carbon...

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.

Also of note- road chains are designed to have some lateral flex so they can derail and go to a different gear. That's not a great feature in a track chain.

They should dominate the match sprint (Lavreisen and Hoogland) and have no reason they shouldn't win the keirin too (Buchli). No other nation has been close to them for a couple of seasons now.
