    First 6 hour race: Can I ride my other mountain bike?

    I have a 6 hour race coming up in about 6 weeks. I am doing this with a partner.

    My question: Is it okay for me to ride my other bike (ss, rigid) on long weekend rides as opposed to the bike I will ride in the race (Fisher Xcal, geared)?

    I dont want to sound dumb, but I thought maybe I would get used to the fit of my ss and not to the fit of my xcal...

    I ride two bikes often. geared full sus and a hard tail single speed. Before races I make sure I do some rides on my geared full sus so it doesn't feel quite as piggy on race day.

    ss is a good tool for intensity and power. When you want a high intensity ride, hit good hills on ss. when you want endurance, get on the geared bike.
    Oh sh!+ just force upgraded to cat1. Now what?
    Best thing about an ultra marathon? I just get to ride my bike for X hours!
