In January 2000, UCI, the international
governing body of bicycle racing adopted the following standards for bicycles
used in competition. All of our Look, Pinarello, Felt, and Quintana Roo time
trial and triathlon bicycles meet
main points of the year 2000 rules are:
- Frames have to be of a double
- Both wheels have to be the
- All tubes have to fit within a
80mm wide template, except near the joints where more room is allowed
- A credit card has to fit between the seat
tube and the tire. Play it safe, if there is
any trouble sliding a credit card through
then move the wheel a millimeter further back.
Though a 2.1mm gap should do it theoretically, a 3mm gap will enable a
credit card to slip through without a problem.
