USA Cycling & UCI Equipment Regulations
USA Cycling and the UCI each have rules pertaining to various pieces of cycling equipment and bike position set-up. While these regulations often differ between disciplines, age groups and competition level, all cyclists are expected to follow the rules just as officials are expected to ensure a level playing field.
