It's crazy how far the boundaries of track bikes are being spread, and how quickly people seem to be doing it, almost like a goldrush or something...One thing I did notice however, in comparison to their parts in the MASH dvd is that this video really seems to be more sponsor driven, instead of based around having fun on bikes. I mean, I understand the grueling nature of a ride that intense, and that this was only a preview, but there wasn't a point in it that the riders looked even a little happy to be out there..but I suppose we will just have to wait for the full video release to see what's really up. By the way, I found the video here, thanks Geoff.

... finished up working on my bmx.
I crashed a couple months back and bent the crank in far enough that it wouldn't clear the frame, but that was an easy enough remedy involving a vice and hammer...
But after another crash, the crank was done... So a few days ago I shelled out the $100+ for some new cranks with this ridiculous 22mm spindle...and I got some new "cool kid" bars made by Eastern... eh, I think it's lookin alright.. I'll try to put some pics up tomorrow of the complete build... I'm crashing.... work at 8:30 in the am..
By the way, if anyone has some creative solution for my road bike ish please share...thanks
