i've only ever had one sports massage and that was after the london marathon, personally i wouldnt bother again as i dont think it helped recovery time at all! but then i might just have had a rubbish masseur! see conversation

the malty oneis correct, the pro's race in draft legal races where aero bars arent allowed. they are allowed short ones, but they arent allowed to extend past the brake levers (so pretty short!). this is for safety because they'll be drafting very close to the bike in front and need to be in full control. non-drafting races are where you'll find full aero bikes. and as AGers, we're mostly going to be in non-drafting races, even if the pro's in the same race are allowed to draft, for example the london tri, but then the pro's will be starting in a seperate group. the pro's arent allowed to draft in long distance races, so if you want to see the proper bike porn, have a look at the half and full ironman distance races, thats where the sexy bikes are being ridden! see conversation

i'm racing on tubulars for the first time this year. just wondering what others do in case you get a puncture? i'm planing on carrying a spare tub, and i tape them on rather than gluing. do i need to pre-tape the spare? or will there still be enough stickiness left on the rim once i've removed the old one and then i just take it really easy around corners after the change? see conversation

i've been doing tri's over here in the uk for the last 4 years, about 5/6 races a year and only been bodymarked a couple of times. i love being bodymarked, makes me feel like more of a triathlete! see conversation

techboy, you do know that you can change the battery yourself in the forerunner 50? the battery costs about £3 (it's the cr232 i think) and all you need is a small screwdriver. i've changed the battery in mine about 4 times (i train about 2 hours a day during the week and more at the weekend-joys of ironman training!) but i have also had it for 2 and a half years. love mine, no problems, i swim with it and cycle and run with it (i've got the cadence/speed bicycle thingy too). imo it cant be beaten for the price. had polar before but i prefer the garmin see conversation
