    I just picked up a wireless, Cannondale SRM spider for $500. That's less than the cost of a Stages. It works great.

    The truth is that very few officials are going to enforce this rule in Cat 5 men's or Cat 4 women's races. I've seen guys race in full pro team kits in Cat 5 races or in sleeveless jerseys. I think...
