I love the anonymity of this forum because I am going to ask a potentially ridiculous question.
I own a Cervelo Soloist, which is my only bike. I road race and do triathlons. For those who are not familiar with the Soloist it has adjustable geometry - the adjustable aero seatpost allows for a switch in seat tube angle from a 73 to anywhere up to 76 degrees for occasional time trials and/or triathlons.
In the past when I have wanted to switch to the tri position (which I was pro fitted for), I would add clip on aero bars, change out the stem, remove the spacers, and replace my road saddle/seatpost with a dedicated tri saddle seatpost.
Ok, here is the question;
For a half Ironman that I plan on doing this fall, would it be a major ordeal, to completely remove the road bars, and put on bullhorns/TT bars. The bike has campy components, and I guess I could do without having bar end shifters on the aero bars, just have them remain with the brake system - is this totally whack? Is this something I could do myself?
I hope I have not completely showed my A$$ by asking this. I have asked several of my bike friends, and no one could give me an answer.
I am going to cross post this in the tri section.
