Q1: Correct. I'd suggest finding somewhere safe for the car key and putting the rest in the car.

Q2: I'd verify with fatbuddha but phones usually banned on course.

Q3: Not very clear in the guide. I'd suggest not relying on anyone other than a "fan".

Cheers, Dave.

Negative splitting the run is probably a first, but have to admit being a bit disappointed with overall fitness. That and the "lost-in-transition" numpty mistake of losing my bike

I'll be there. If you think it's flat, I suggest you have another look.

Rental market research.......

Thought about this myself but I don't have the time at the minute to do it.

There's already plenty of Zipps to hire. Why not rent out some Swisssides or Flos? Cheaper and fast.

Clinchers because you don't want the liability of trusting customers to glue stuff together. GP4000s as standard.

Cassette Options.

How do you differentiate yourself? The above wheels do it on price, or you can extend the hire period for the same price as Zipps. 

You need to think about insurance, covering yourself for dodgy customers and customers for hire damage.

There's more but I'm not giving you everything

My 910XT has packed up reading altitude at all, one of my usual run routes that has around 150m of ascent on it, is now pancake flat!  I suspect the Altimeter has failed though rather than the satellites!

Take a toothbrush and some soapy water to these holes:

 Salt and sweat block them up - this is a known issue.

You sound like my vendor...

You're a known issue.
