Have you been racing? If so, how far behind 1st/2nd/3rd are you?

If you’ve got a decent amount of time to make up yet, your money and time could be better spent elsewhere. Bike bling is cool, but...

In my knowledge, that is the general intention of the rule. But as anyone knows, or will learn, it depends on the commissaries. There have been some high level races affected by hard core...

3T make the ARX stem in 150mm. The trick is finding one as they seem to be pretty rare. I have one on my bike that's permanently in the trainer.
