I'm racing my heavier aluminum C'dale for the crit this morning. When I got it out last night my wife said, "Are you racing that?" Like she threw up a little when she said it.
It's the second race this year. People are still sketchy, and I don't want to lose my carbon bike in a massive sprint crash today. My C'dale has been through hell and back and has withstood many crashes. She's come out of it alive and well - even when I had to be sent to the ER. It's going to be tough racing a 7lb heavier bike, but the peace of mind out weighs that.
Anybody else race a different bike in crits?
