there's a problem...
the new rules for junior's time trial races says that we cant use a time trial bike....
we can only use a road bike with clip-on aerobar.
my options are:
1) to sell my time trial bike :-(
2) to buy a drop bar, road shifers and clip-on aero bar and put on my time trial bike and say that it's a road bike.

what do you think I should do?
I'm pretty skeptikal about converting my tt bike in to a road bike....

National or international rule? That sucks man. I understand the rule in the younger classes (U17 and so on), but this is a bit too far. If you can get awy with the dropbar/clip-on solution, you should do it. You can always use the bike after juniors.
Good looking bikes :thumbup:

Go for it and put some drops on the tt rig, thats what a lot of the juniors here in australia do as they are restricted by the same rules (up to u19's). You can always keep the bike and use it once you are out of juniors as well! :thumbup:

thank you all for the advices :-)
I'll check if it is possible to race with the bike as is first, I looked on how they define a tt bike and the rules were not to use an integrated bar and not to use disc wheel. so maybe I could race with my canondale as is, I have a base bar and an aero bar, not an integrated bar....
the next tt competition is in two weeks and I think I will go there with both of my bikes and if the judges wont let me use my tt bike, I will use my road bike.
remember: It's not the bike, it's the rider

Sorry to hear about the leg! You can use the time to replace the bar tape. ;-)

Too bad about broken leg and mountain bike. Hope you are healing up ok. Will you have the frame repaired?

I dont know yet. I asked the specialized dealer about the warrenty, he took some pics of the frame and sent them to specialized....
I hope they will replace it.

If they wouldn't replace my frame, I will look for an aluminum frame....

specialized they said that its my fault and that I probably fell and the frame got hit by an object. they didn't give me warrenty :-(

the specialized dealer gave me an aluminium frame instead of my broken carbon one :-) :
