Time trial number attachment

To those in the OCP ranks, does anyone use an adhesive to attach your number in a tt?

What adhesive? Pros/cons?

Remarks sexual in nature need not reply (goo on your back, etc)

spray mount is the only thing i can think of that may work, but you would still need to use pins.

you can also count on your skinsuit dissolving (where the the spray mount touches it) over the course of the season due to the shizzle in the spray mount.

Well, yes use an adhesive spray for TTs, I think my team uses 3M but I couldn't tell you. Also you should place it as low as possible (like on your butt, not back) so you'll have goo on your ass, which I'm pretty sure is much more attractive. And yeah, it doesn't come off for a while.

If you've never used an adhesive, how can you know it will disolve a skinsuit? This much I know: Friends have used spray mount for years without any pins and the number always stays on. They use a version from 3M, but I don't know the exact name. Even after years of doing this, their skinsuits are just fine.

Well you either don't know much about the adhesive or don't know much about lycra, because several people have been using the spray adhesive on skinsuits for years without any ill effects. So my next question is why are you saying to believe you over my own eyes?

Unfortunately, our club TT here hands out numbers and collects them after, so it's strictly a pin job. Might have to look into that spray-on adhesive for the sanctioned TT's though.

You folks are over-complicating what is, in actual fact, a very simple process...
