Subject: Ironman bike number placement
Hey freaks...what is the ruling on the placement of the stem number sticker? My stem is covered with a bottle cage/computer mount. Is there an acceptable alternative placement? I have a flat area on the mounting plate for the bottle cage that is visible from the top. I really hate to change my cockpit prior to the race. The cage is kind of optional as I primarily just use it for empty bottle storage but the plate also holds my computer. Side note: I had considered cutting open an old X Labs torpedo and using it as a bento box. It's taper time and have to get everything sorted. I don't need curve balls.

If you wonder why I'm not using a traditional BTA application, it's because I'm not using a traditional set of bars.

Yeah, I'm familiar with the seat post number but apparently Ironman Mont Tremblant requires an additional number sticker that goes on top of the stem. I don't want to lose my computer mount because of this.

With the design of the Argon's front end and my BTA setup, I've had to place my "stem sticker" on the front area of my bike. I don't have a sticker there at the moment but I pointed to where I typically place mine (as well as a picture of the front end and why I don't place my sticker there). I've never had an official say anything about my placement in the past.

You might check with race officials.  The stem sticker is mostly to make sure bike and rider belong together when they leave transition after the race.  It may not need to be visible *during* the race.
