For the ride around the rivers, they state "No Tri bars". I tried the argument that mine are touring bars and are mounted a lot higher, but they claim Tri Bars are dangerous in group rides, so I didn't do the ride.
It's too much trouble removing them, plus I have the camera mounted on them now too.

I will be looking for the BWA flags now. At least I know there will be a loo nearby if I need to go

So its an issue of finding new brakes that can replace the old ones, and checking a few compatibility issues...old frame, new brakes (ie. dual pivots) ...have things changed etc. And i dont really know many ppl that cycle so borrowing a bike would seem, unlikely
