which is another idea. I have mine mounted on the stem. I guess I could have done it on the beam as another option.
I'll be doing IMAZ so if I find out some different ideas, I'll let you know.
Bottom line...do whatever works for you! Practice in training.
I can't understand why more people don't use Gel holders. I can fit about 4 gel holders(x4 shots) in my shirt if I need to. They are way faster and a lot less messy.
Some people are slobs and criminals too...I put the empty PowerBar wrappers and Gu packs in my far right pocket. I carry Gu in the left, PowerBars in the middle, and a plastic baggie with various pills and things in the center also. I have a gel flask but haven't bothered to use it.
I am not sure why this is, but generally speaking, triathletes seem to be adverse to carrying stuff in jersey pockets when training or racing. The seem to want to have stuff mounted on the bike. This has sprung up a cottage industry making all kinds of little gizmos to mount stuff somewhere and everywhere on the bike.
I get a bit of a laugh when I am standing at the exit from T1 in an Ironman race. Some of the bikes are so burdaned down and festooned with all this extra stuff, that it's hard to tell it's even a bike anymore They look like they are going off on an extended week long bike tour. The reality is there is a fully stocked aid station just 10 miles down the road!

I often see Softride customers pics of there bikes,(Beam Team pics) If you have a Softride and you have not signed up for the Beam Team then do so @ Softride.com and send us your pic and score some free swag. Well if you guys would like to its allright to cut off your excess amount of beam behind the seat and looks and works much better.If you have any questions contact Lars @ softride 800-557-6387
Only .005% of the population will ever do a triathlon, let alone an IM...its a blast
Good Luck to the Gang from Chattanooga in there quest of Ironman Florida!!!!
Make sure you leave planty of beam+1cm incase you change the set up.
Mark it using the seta clamp.
Cut with a hacksaw using very light pressure (use a mask).
File it smooth.
Replace the cap.
Take everything I say with a grain of salt. I know nothing.
