Does A&M have a team that rides track?

Im pretty positive no one here in lubbock is willing to travel to ride track

Also, What about the Trek T1 or the Felt tk2?

I could get felts at a discount from my lbs

Yes, we do.

Doubt it. That's quite a ways for you guys.

I liked the felt more than the trek, but that's just me.

The felt is a really nice bike out of the box. Plus you can sell the sphinx bar that comes on it, put something normal on there and make it a little cheaper. I don't know why they spec that on there it is pretty ridiculous for an entry level track rig.
The trek is an ok bike too, but the parts it comes with suck and the geometry is kind of *****y for a race bike.

I feel you man. I attend one of the worst universities in the nation when it comes to bike theft. I invested in TWO fagettaboutit locks ($210 in locks ) and I still feel wary when I lock it up.

I broke a spoke on my powertap hub laced to an open pro, took the wheel off, removed the spoke and rode all the way home no problems. Wheel is bomb proof. My buddies at the shop usually help me out with small stuff like that.

Spokes are cheap, it's the maintenance that'll cost you. Unless of course you have spare spokes of the correct length and know how to replace them. I've been out of town on travel since sunday and no bike riding. I want to play polo and ride mountain bikes so bad.

It is only one spoke, but I think I am just going to replace them all being that I have had the wheel for 2 years now without problems.

How much you think it will cost to relace a wheel?

Why not just do it yourself? Imo if you consider biking a hobby you should be able to work on any part of your bike without the need for a shop.

I certainly don't mind having my bike shop do it.
Especially considering I get all work on my bikes done for free and all needed parts I get at cost.

I am too lazy. Yep, good enough answer. Now back to the question....how much would it cost?


I get free labor and just paying for parts. They are better at truing a wheel then I am.

depending on spokes, they can cost anywhere from .50 to 2.00 per spoke. So multiple that for your wheel, plus anywhere from 40 to 60 per wheel is what i've found to be average. It's not unheard for me to walk out post wheel build with a 200 dollar tab. Blame that on 48h spokes.

Way to go, stoopid.

Buddy of mine(A) had a kid(B) run into his(A) rear wheel with his(B) front wheel quick disconnect. Ended up breaking ~7 of A's rear spokes.
