is it usually okay at any race to switch bikes? do they care?fezi said:Bike bits, I take several brake pad sets for the bike, two full sets of tyres, lube, spare chain, hangers x 2, spare seat, complete spare bike (mines a identical bike to my race bike, nothing worse than trying to adapt to a different bike after 18 hours on your race bike)
track pump, workstand, latex solution, spray cleaner for the bikes
And a stereo for the pit crew to groove away to while you put yourself through 12 different flavours of hell on earth...
There's heaps more but I'm drilled at the moment from training for my next 24... 5 weeks and counting down
I'm not 100% sure of every race rule but generally 24's have zero care of how many bikes you use. However I do believe that the bike you start a lap on is the bike you have to finish that lap on.mx_599 said:is it usually okay at any race to switch bikes? do they care?
