    you say that more pressure does not equate to higher performance, then say you used 220 psi? How much higher pressure were you contemplating?

    Is the Erie Velodrome really open?? Not the the weather is good.

    How about a no nonsense report of the velodrome compared to others? What are veteran track riders saying?

    I consulted those in the trenches and this is the best source of information. I looked at the science. Nico, being a very analytic individual was a great resource. I would mention something I was considering and over great contemplation, over a mocha, he would thumbs up or down.
    We have been talking wheels, chains, seats, helmets, clothing for years! It is a good idea to take note of what nations use in terms of equipment during the Olympics. Riders and Team Mechanics are a wealth of information as to what works and what does not. I took some heat with the tires on my training wheels being mounted with the label up. Apparently this is bad, as if there is a spot of moisture, it could potentially slide out, so I'm already saying I know, when the track expert starts looking over my rig. I met Al Morrison while racing Moriarty one year. He is an expert with the dynamics of rolling resistance and bike tires. We call Al the Tire Guy. So much depends on the surface, tire/tube composition and many other dynamics, but the jist is more pressure does not equate to higher performance. I asked questions, sleeves/ no sleeves, gloves, and shamefully I admit Nico and I discussed how much fuzz on the legs might be beneficial. I had 220psi with the Vitt Evo CS 23 on the Mavic 4 Spoke front and Cosmic Disc. 54x14 (DA 3/32) Rotor 172.2 SRM Track PC7. Shimano 9sp 3/32 Friction Facts prep chain (optimized to save 4.52W), Selle SMP Chrono saddle, USE Tula bars w/ Zipp extensions. 54 Cervelo T4 frame, thanks Nico!

    Hey Kevin, curious minds want to know about your equipment; bike, wheels, tires, tire pressure, helmet, gearing, skinsuit, shoe covers etc... And ya just can't leaves us hanging about what happen in Erie.

    Good go at it sir! I don't know you but I really admire your efforts both here and the other "legends" of you here on 303cycling. Freakin' Eddy Merckx - “just go hard as you can and hold on! “

    I agree that when the trail width requires you to stop when encountering traffic is the right thing to do.

    You make valid points, but I'm not going to give up on the fact that you can yield to another trail user on the Marshall Mesa trails without just riding off the trail. It takes 10 seconds to slow down, put one foot down and let someone pass. When I see downhill riders just blaze 15 feet off the trail to avoid slowing down, I'm very disappointed.

    I ride the Marshall Mesa trails a lot. I rarely ride it during peak hours as the behavior is ridiculous, and I don't think its lack of education I think its "I'm more important" mentality.
