    Pursuit Set-up

    I know that many pursuit bikes are specifically designed just for this event. In spite of this, I'd like to be able to set up my Rock Lobster (http://velospace.org/node/218) for doing (team) pursuit events. I am assuming I can just get a different bar and stem set-up to get me in a more aero position?

    Anyone done this and have any recommendations as far as what bar or stem (Look Ergo Stem?) to go with or things to be wary of?

    Thanks

    If u feel comfortable riding like that, then its ok. I think the problem at least for me is to know how do u ride. If your riding style isnt the right one no matter what u change in the bike, the performance will be the same and maybe even worse if u change something, is like putting F1 tires into a suzuki swift. It would be more accurate to send a picture of u riding, then tell u what to do to fit u better then start doing the mods.

    U want to change the stem, A longer one will get u in a position too "lazy" to react to changes in speed or even having problems in the curves when doing the "relieve", a lower stem might have too suffocated... actually u have to try thats all, but w/o seeing u it is hard to tell what kind of experimentation to do so far besides the stem, I would keep the same handlebar because u have a better aerodinamic position (lower) than if u were using those modolo horns ones.
