BikeRadar says:

Disc wheels are optional and are added to front or rear depending on the event, if at all. In some events some riders have front disc and others rear. It all depends how much moving about the track they need to do.

“track bikes can be converted to road use by adding a brake“, haha, or just why not have no brakes at all ?

A bike with no gear and no brakes means its a bullshit bike that can be passed by any lousy entry level Road Bike.

Noob of the moth hear, can you get a track bike with a road bikes geometry?

TnT Mob says:

Understand something, I have two track bikes , both of them with front brakes,, more than 95% of the time I dont use them, and on that 5% maybe 4% of that i wouldnt need to use the brake itself. When i roll with my crew I am the only one that has a brake, and yes in Canada it is illegal but still the people who roll brakeless( especially now in winter) have alot of skill. many people suggest they are out of their minds, but i know that they know what they are doing, theyve mastered their bikes

you’re a car guy, what you just said is intellectually equivalent to claiming a ferrari isn’t a good rally car, different bikes for different events
