Please also note that per release by the Union Cycliste International (UCI) in May of 2009, the interpretation of UCI bicycle regulations is being enhanced as of July 1, 2009. The interpretation deals specifically with the ratio of length to width of parts of a bicycle, including the tubes and accessories, and is known as the 3:1 aspect ratio rule (Regulation 1.3.024). The CCA would like to clarify that enforcement of this 3:1 aspect ratio for handlebars will be enforced at UCI calendar races held in Canada beginning July 1, 2009, including the National Track Championships. As of Jan. 1, 2010, the rule will be enforced for all bicycle parts.
For a guide on the 3:1 aspect ratio on bicycles please view the UCI document posted here:
