So looking at TTown posts, Kim was inducted in the Hall of Fame the night I was there. But when they started doing the announcements, Junior had to go to the bathroom, and he needed food, so we missed most of it. I didn't realize until I was reading Facebook that she was inducted that night.

In technical related things, I put the longer ISM saddle on and the bike immediately felt better.

I also finally, finally installed the seat rail SRM mount. I got it with the track cranks but for the life of me could not figure out how to put it on - the computer kept getting in the way. Basically I failed the IQ test, like how does this shape fit there? Well, today, when putting on the saddle, I put the PC7 onto the mount held it up to the saddle.... and I realized, oh, that's how it fits. I don't know why it took me something like 19 months to figure it out.

mates well with a 23mm tub.
The downside was about a three month wait due to COVID and tubular being special order.
Hey, I wanted to come back and thank you for this recommendation.
I went with the same wheel and love it. The width is... surprising at first, but it tested shockingly fast, and feels really good.

Thanks for the link.
Why were multiple bronze medels awarded in some age events?

They give medals five deep at USAC National Championship. So, the fourth and fifth place riders also get bronze medals.

Small question and I might just be going crazy here, but what the heck happened to track chainring costs?

I was looking to replace the drivetrain on one of my framesets and the old traditional standard FSA is 100 bucks now (I remember them at $50 forever on Ben's Cycle), Shimano 7710's are 140+, Sugino Zen chainrings are 250 bucks (I bought a 50T two years ago for 140 and I thought that was a lot), etc etc.

I know Covid's hit supply chains pretty hard and such, but when did they all double in price?

Track rings have always been a bit steep, its why I prefer a 130bcd on my bike and 110bcd on the kids' bikes, BMX chainrings can be quite affordable and very good quality. Even they can still get expensive at 40-60.00 each but not as bad as 144bcd parts, probably due to the level of demand.

having recently tried to save money here and ended up with a not very round chainring I would do your research before buying. Bought a Goldtec 53T which is soon to be on eBay when the replacement from Raketa arrives.
My wife is from St Petersburg and travels back once a year so if the Raketa proves to be round and hard wearing she will be picking me up a few next summer.

Velobike is great.

Also check out njs-export.com for used stuff from Japan.

Is anyone on here running Miche Pistard Air or Pistard 2.0 crankset? If so, are you running the Miche BB or possibly a shimano Hollowtech 2 bb?
