Which bikes do you use for racing and training? I've been told that most people choose to train on a carbon bike, and race (usually crit) on something else, due to the higher chance of crashing. What do you do?
But I'm going to say 99% or people race on what they train on. These days, that is more and more becoming carbon. People I race with put the race bike (carbon) away in the winter and bring out some old bike (Al or steel) they have sitting around as a salt bike.
I have a SystemSix and a Six13 which have both seen race time at one point or another, both crits and road races. I actually was planning to use the Six13 as my crit bike and the SystemSix for road races but, I have not spent a single minute on the Six13 this season. SystemSix has been pulling training, crit, and road race duty.
