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?
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.
