    Time Trial Skinsuit Alteration

    I read that Dave Zabriskie cuts the elastic section off the arms and legs of his time trial skinsuits. I've noticed a lot of other people doing it too, and I like the look. It could prove to be a little more aero as well. Has anyone else done this? I have some TTs coming up and debating experimenting on my skinsuit.

    done for comfort. Leg/arm grippers can bite in...especially if you're a bit sunburnt 1/2 way through a GT.

    Plus he isn't personally shelling out the $200 -$300 for his pro skinsuit every time he decides to get happy with the scissors.

    I believe I read somewhere that he has a latex allergy, hence the removal of the rubber from his kit. I could be wrong though.
