Fixed Gear Bike Racing
Jim had to build his bike to race at the Major Taylor Velodrome in Indianapolis. Jim actually has a fixed gear bike of his own that he built, but the pedals and gears are too low on the frame for the velodrome track angle. He ad reserved a bike last week, but apparently, the staff had given his and another one the same size away already.... So Jim was stuck 'creating' his own bike for the race in less than 10 minutes. Thank goodness he brought his own tools.
