    Hello there.
    I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a intermediate level frame to ride on the velodrome, as i am minutes from the home depot ADT center.

    On a side note, what would be a good gear ratio for a junior rider (13) to push, as of right now i ride a 48-15 ratio. If it even does matter in this case. Thanks.

    Search please.

    But anyways, isn't it a rule that you have to stay on 16t until you're like, 15 or something?

    It will probably help us (and by that I mean: the people who actually can speak for nicer bikes) if you can describe your budget and other needs.
    Way to go on being 15 and racing track. I grew up near a velodrome and never took the opportunity to try it out, although I did rockclimb next to it.

    I'm at the moment trying to find an aluminum frame that would cost around $1000.

    Gear ratio requirements for ADT are that you stay at 48-15 for all Junior ages (18 and under) and I would go with a Dolan or FTP. HDT has felt TK3's you can rent aswell.
