Yes, that is the purpose of the flip-flop hub. Saves you some time changing cogs. As to the other, I've never considered it as front tire wear is usually negligible, but its sounds like a reasonable...

Relatedly, how have you all got you saddle set? I'm already at about 4cm back so it's not too painful to just go the extra 10mm to be safe. However, I'm under the impression that most sprinters go...

I'd agree with everybody on this-- intentionally losing height just before you jump probably won't help you lower your times. Could it be you're a bit tentative jumping at the rail? I know this has...

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.

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.
