I ride at Bloomer in Rochester MI (200m wood outdoor track), am 37 years old, 2nd year riding/racing at the track, we do mostly scratch / points /miss-n-out, and I hope to learn the Madison this year (practiced a few exchanges last year). I ride a stock Trek T1 with the addition of a 15t cog.
Those look great to me.

I'm not a Madison racer, but I think lateral stiffness is important for those who race that event due to the forces coming at odd angles during exchanges.
