My first guess would be BT, but there is an Australian firm that has been doing some custom components for them for the last little while. I don't recall the name, but someone on here mentioned the company. They were the ones who were making the horizontally scalloped seatposts for the national team riders.

Didn't AUS team drop BT for Argon18?

You're right, so maybe the other company I still can't recall the name of. I think it might have been @pierrej that had the info on the posts. Maybe he has some insider info about the bars?

Made locally, same company that does the ribbed seat post and the molded aerobar extensions. None of the team ever really used them but they can be made in any measurements you would like

Also here's the custom "Thomson" also made locally

Unfortunately I've got very little info about the new argon as it's all very hush hush at the moment, but it should be very very fast, especially at the Olympics.

Here's the image with the sources of everything, both design and manufacture for the older bikes

Here's the link to the webpage

I found this quote at https://www.endurancebusiness.com/20...ashton-lambie/
A team spokesperson added, “We’re breaking the mould and doing it our own way. Our chain rings are made by a guy with arthritis in his shed, yet they are the best in the world.”
Is there any info on these chain rings?

Agreed. They straight-up missed the most common crank length used in track cycling...165mm.

They offer:
- 170.0mm
- 172.5mm
- 175.0mm

http://www.srm.de/fileadmin/_process...ab7e1f79eb.jpg

When the most common crank lengths for trackies are:
- 165.0mm
- 167.5mm
- 170.0mm

I mean, did they even ask anyone who rides a track bike?

carleton 12-05-18 11:45 PM

What's silly is that this is modeled after the LOOK ZED crank in coordination with LOOK (I believe).

LOOK knows what's up. They offer two options when you buy a R96:


The ZED TRACK crank is available in two sizes and the length of the crank arms are adjustable thanks to a tri-lobed nut.

Size 1: 165mm / 167.5mm / 170 mm
Size 2: 172.5mm / 175mm / 177.5 mm

SRM is just putting it's road arms on the track PM.

Interesting interview, they weren’t that happy about Berlin but 4th in a World Cup isn’t that bad, https://www.velouk.net/2018/12/05/fe...ts-to-aim-for/

Training App Comparison Matrix
 
In case anyone is interested, as you hunker down and enter your indoor training period, I did some research on the myriad of training apps out there and created a comparison matrix. This is a work in progress and I add new apps based on feedback.

Stopped by the local Performance yesterday to check out the Going out of Business Sale. I was surprised to see a Fuji Elite track bike in there. Looked to be slightly used. Price was $2k for the complete bike - with 35 Scattos and DA cranks. It was a 52 frame, so way too small for me.

Thanks! As I have decided to get back into the sport this coming year, this is actually VERY useful for me as I'm looking to get on a training platform to work out with indoors.

You're welcome! Don't hesitate to toss any questions my way. I am very familiar and have current subscriptions to some of these apps: TrainerRoad, Rouvy, BKOOL, and ZWIFT. I have yet to find a single program that meets all of my needs, but Rouvy is probably the closest -- if they would just improve their workouts so that the instructional text is more apparent. So currently, I use Rouvy for my endurance rides and TrainerRoads for my interval training and structured workouts.

I just learned that Kawasaki keirinjo (Urban Bank) has a pretty excellent English language webpage with a very clear schedule of races, something I wish ALL keirin tracks had. Also handy guides in English on how to bet:
