Both times I've been to elite nats, Bike Check starts out fairly 'rigorous' - they put the bike in the jig, eyed it closely, and then put it on the scale. and, later on in the week (particularly for mass start races), Bike Check began to be, "yup, it's the same bike as you had before; put it on the scale. okay."
