I'm a road endurance enthusiast and accredited track cyclist at Lee Valley Velodrome.
Having built a custom Cinelli Vigorelli steel, fixed bike brought me here. Not that experienced with fixie/track so any advice is welcome! Love riding my fixie!!!
Now looking to improve my knowledge on fixed gear and exchange opinions with like minded peeps!
Why does my chain slack??!

    I need to send over a bike from London to a friend who lives in Rotterdam.
    Any suggestions please on how to do it best? Any companies that’d take it responsibly?
    It’s a carbon road bike so needs to be safe during transport. I’ve thought about sending it over via ferry but would prefer a door-to-door option for various reasons.

    I have a Wheelset of Fulcrum Racing 3 road wheels (with QR) which are not really roadworthy anymore (both hubs and rims worn out) so not sure if the hub would be good for the turbo but up to 1 hour use when it starts warming up it should be fine. Clincher 600 normal size etc. I’m based in Camden.
    Edit: sorry you say track.. prolly won’t do then!

    Never bothered to experiment to be honest so I’ve been riding as it is. The slack isn’t as major and from the comments above it seems like a “normal” thing to happen.
    I’ve been on the track plenty of times since then and also raced a couple of crits and it’s not even noticeable :)
    I changed the chainring from 49 to 52 and no difference really. The slack is minor. Still on the same chain though.
