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??!

    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.

    Thanks!
    Bagsy has started Hydrotherapy (finally!) and is doing pretty well! Were hopeful that we’ll see good progress from now on while he gets stronger!
    Here’s a video of him swimming today.
    I’m looking to print some merch (tees and caps).
    Do you have any recommendations?
    Thanks!
