I feel like if I had two race bikes I'd never be totally comfortable on one of them, unless their fit was exactly the same. Too much trouble/money/space for now..

That's why you buy two of the same bike. Build them up with the same 'fit' things, and set one up for training, so cheaper/heavier parts+training wheels+etc, and the other up for racing. That way you can just switch wheels and race the backup without any issues.

It's also not that hard getting 2 similar bikes to fit 'the same'.
