OK got my first triathlon in a couple of weeks, it got suggested that i purchase a race belt so i did as i was told, purchased said item, now a really random question. What are the dangly bits for? The only reference i can find is to secure your race number - how does that work?
I look forward to some serious and not so serious answers as re-reading i realise this can be misinterpreted but how else to describe??? elastic cords???
Ah ha, it all becomes clear. Yes i do have cord shocks, but no there are no pop studs. I was trying to work out if you looped them around something, didn't consider removing the cord shocks first.
We live, we learn!
Exactly what I wanted to know. Thanks, you two. * Was going to thread everything thro' the holes and tie knots. ' Cord shocks' is a new compound noun for me. Had no idea..*
Number belts cause loads of drag, you are better using safety pins and fastenning the number as flat as possible.
Its all about being Aero
Yes, but the flapping noise does get rather annoying!!
I will be trying new pinning techniques on my next tri.
