Location: Over the hill!
On the very rare occasions I ride a TT, I use my track bike with tri bars and a front brake.
I dont use gears, computer, pulse monitor or a bottle. I like that there is nothing to think about or distract me from getting those damn pedals round I fast as I possibly can!

Love the bike. Just what I had in mind. Thanks everyone for all for your input. I'm charged up for this project now. TT are rare in my area (Washington DC :oops: ) but I'm hoping to start an unofficial weekly TT and something like this bike would serve me well.....Wahoooo!
