So I race cross out here on the east coast in the MABRA/MAC/ABRA series. I am flying out to San Diego from 11/20-11/29 one for my birthday, two to hang out with best friends who just got married and three see the pacific for the first time!
I am looking at traveling with a bike or shipping a bike and its such a pain in the ass and more importantly expensive on top of the already expensive flight out and back.
I ride a 58 and or 61cm crux. If anyone has anything I can barrow for that race it would be so awesome! Ill buy you all the beer and food you want at the race.
Ill take gears or SS!!!
Thanks for the help!
Larry- Check with Dorothy Wong at SoCal Cross http://www.socalcross.com/ and she can hook you up. If not let me know and I will circulate to some of the teams.
They always have rental bikes available for about $10 a race. As the date gets closer, check the registration page, I believe there is usually an pull down menu to reserve a bike for your race. But like Rob said, check with the organizers to make sure they have a bike that is big enough for you.
BTW, that is one of the best courses/races of the season!
