Track Bikes

Who here uses their daily bike as a track bike?

I'd like to start taking the 675 to the track but I don't care too much for the thought of swapping skins etc...

I'd rather have a 675 for the road and one for the track

That's what I do. Heck, I am so lazy I don't even take off my mirrors. I just point them forward and then blue tape the out of them.

If I wasn't saving so much on gas I'd probably sell the street bike. Track is way more fun than dodging cars. :icon_bigg
