SaftyCyclist said:Which country are you in? If you're a road rider it's probably going to be endurance events you'll be riding rather than sprints, a lot of folks just switch bars & move the saddle a bit for pursuiting, you can get away with having one bike which will cover all track disciplnes.
vanillagorilla said:I'm in the US. Yeah I'm a roadie. Are you talking about adding bars and moving the saddle to my road bike, or doing that to a track bike? Most of the bike sites I'm used to going to for road bikes don't have track bikes, except felt.
vanillagorilla said:It is a 250m track, looks wooden from what I can tell. Check it out.
Another question, do you use the same shoes/pedals that are on a road bike or something else? It seems like when I was watching the world championships they strapped in there shoes. Thanks for all the replies.

That way you can try out racing on the track with your regular road bike before you go out and spend the money on a track bike. I have heard some of the local shops around the track will rent you a track bike, except I am not sure of the cost or the quality of the bike they rent you.
