  • I think the question is how fun is a trackstand.

    Cycling in London is smelly, dangerous, populated by arseholes and generally exhausting and demoralising. The game of trackstanding at the lights just adds a little pointless challenge to take my mind off it.

    But to answer your question:

    Standing up, on a camber: 4/10
    sitting down on a camber: 6/10
    sitting down no hands on a camber: 7/10
    sitting down, no hands, facing downhill: 8/10
    sitting down, facing down hill, rolling a cigarette, tossing off a cat: 9/10

    No one has ever attempted a 10/10 impressive level trackstand.
