    General Riding Behavior
    The captain is not, under any circumstances, to display reckless, dangerous, harmful or otherwise Stoker-threatening riding behavior. Letting go of the handlebar during a descent and yelling, “Look Ma, no hands” will result in immediate remediation. The properly trained captain is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.

    I've heard the same logic used concerning pacelining, riding tandems, or just riding bikes at all.

    It is a bit of an anomaly in the rules though if they do not allow aero bars but let you ride invisible ones! Certainly the real thing provides better control but obviously shouldn't be used when not appropriate (in a bunch, technical bits etc).

    Question about aero bars on a Cannondale Mocha: Does anyone make aero bars that fit a handlebar that is not round, or how can it be adapted?
