This is me:

Here is a vid of me doing a roller race. I averaged 241rpm from a standing start in that video. My highest RPM ever came in that video too, of 306. Granted, I'm only at that rpm for a split second, but as far as anyone can tell, that is the world record for highest rpm on a 'normal' bike. The British national team have something they call the clown bike that has 100mm cranks, and riders have done 320-340 on it. But the bike in this vid had 165s on.

The main thing that you have to remember is that roadies don't really need this kind of spin. But on the track, we don't have another gear to click into. The only way to go faster is to spin faster. I normally hit 155 in a race, whereas 120 is considered a really fast spin for a roadie.

Or find a pal with the same sized seatpost and just switch them out for a ride, see if it goes away.
Well after a long month of diagnosing the problem, Ive finally discovered the problem and fixed the issue.

I was riding on Saturday morning and noticed a similar click sound when Im going through some rough roads. It goes away when I stand up save my ass from soaking up all the vibration. This got me thinking that maybe its my seat post. I put my hand on tube where the seat post does into to feel for the click and sure enough i felt it.

I wasnt expecting the seat post to rattle inside the tube esp when its tightened down properly. I went home and inspected the seat post and there wasnt much grease on it. I lathered on some thick grease on the post and the tube and tightened down the clamp some more. Went out for a test ride and it was dead silent.

Im guessing with the lack of grease and the frame flexing, it was enough to for the frame to strike against the seat post every time I pedal. Well thats taken cared of, basically cost me nothing to repair.

Lol don't let me stop you! Track is incredible. Yoy can be good at it with any body type. For the mass start stuff, I always explain it as a road race, but with none of the forplay.

Just got done doing a race in Scotland. Ill post some photos next week when I get home of just how big track is in that side of the world.

In Mexico City now racing the Panamerican champs. Pulled out a bronze and a national record yesterday.

This is my race bike, nothing too special. It's an '03 Specialized Hemi Pro, got it on eBay last year for $120. I took this pic right after I assembled it, look at those monster (heavy) street tires. It now has proper racing tires, new drive train, better brake pads and a rebuilt headset. I will reward myself with something newer once I start winning.

Thinking of buying one of the carbon road frames from Hong Fu and swapping the parts from my Jamis Ventura over.

Anyone here have experience with the Chinese carbon frames? Most things I found were pretty positive.
