I ride a Giant Trinity 0 triathlon bike which comes as standard with integrated gear levers on the tri-bars.
I am racing this bike in a triathlon in Barcelona which is draft legal and therefore I am looking for some advice. The rules (ITU) state that nothing can pass the gear levers which cleary my tri-bars and gear levers do.
I am therefore planing on replacing the front end (handle bars and brake/gear levers(105 or upwards)). What I dont know is if there is anything I need to consider to achieve this? I love the position of the ride on the Trinity 0 and am not looking to ride with this set-up for more than 4 weeks whilst I train and race on it.
Money is not the issue here, i just want to ride my bike in Barcelona as opposed to hiring one or purchasing a cheap road bike which I then wont need. I am happy to invest heavily to make the change (and back again) as I plan to race again in mainland Europe where draft legal races occur.
Thanks in advance for your time.
