Dr Pete- If you were using it in a race, how does it go from Swim to T1 to Bike to T2 to Run... I hear it is one touch to toggle from swim to bike to run I think, but does it account for Transistions?

Bar end recommendations?

What are some good end bars that you guys use?

Where to find "end" caps for bars?
