    Do you set up your bike different for wet and dry?

    I was watching the race from Nove Mesto and they were talking about Jaroslav Kulhavy having 2 different bikes with different front end setups. I have never thought about changing any thing other then tires.

    I bet the biggest difference between the 2 bikes is tires.

    They were saying he has less saddle-bar drop on the wet setup. Makes sense as you can't commit as much to the front tire in corners and need to weight the back more on the climbs.

    I have a different setup for the wet...when it rains I race my singlespeed so I don't have to buy an entire new drivetrain after the race! The singlespeed is set up with a mudflap between the crown of the fork and the arch, as well as mud tires, I'll take both to the race if it looks like rain and make a decision which to race just before the start. I've managed to be fairly competitive on the SS, even in the dry.

    So, is this is dry or wet set up?
