Time trial are a of racing that are for time events. The rules for bikes are less prescriptive those for start road (see rules to 1.3.023). bicycles are by International Union (ITU) which allow recent technological than do UCI rules. The frame a racing must, according the UCI be constructed a “main with three tubular shapes—the tube. down and seat

These three and other of the need not cylindrical, however, many racing feature frames use alternative Traditionally, the tube of racing bicycle close to with the when the is in normal upright Some racing however, have top tube slopes down the rear the bicycle; “compact” frame was popularized Giant.
