Subject: Disc Brakes this season?
Hi -- I know that officially Triathlon Ontario is not permitting the use of disc brakes this season. I'm not sure what the rule was last year,, but I used my bike with them last year (unknowingly) and no one said anything -- but I am a little more concerned about it this year since i have seen it in the race notes.

This seems strange as I still see a lot of folks on mountain bikes at the tri-a-trys and many of those are disc.

Has anyone spoken to the race organizations about this or noticed any at the MIlton event this past weekend.

I'd recommend asking Tri Ontario directly via email or social media (they're pretty active on twitter).

Should be interesting as the Xterra races in Ontario are all under Triathlon Ontario. I can assure you 90+% of the bikes will have disc brakes. My guess is that rule will be ignored by all - as it should be.

Fast forward to now after many triathlons and marathons, my back is worse than ever. What helps lumbar back issues? Shots, physical therapy, surgery?

Are your brakes not slowing you down enough? Are your wheels rubbing on them? This video will cover the basics on adjusting your own bicycle brakes.

I know that annular tears mean there is a risk for a bigger disc blow-out. How do I continue to train and compete without putting myself at risk for worsening of my injury?

How often should you have a bike tune up and what should be included? Is it unreasonable to expect a refitting as part of the tune up?

If you develop a strategy for the off-season, you can go into the next season stronger than you ended the past season.
