My New Bike
Click here for all the specs!
As I mentioned in my previous post, the tri season is here and so if I'm really serious about doing some big time races, I needed to get on the ball and get a new bike. Last night, my friend Christy and I went to a bike store just to look. And I walked out an hour later with this beauty :) The price was fantastic - big time sale, so I couldn't pass it up.
This is my first road bike as I have only had a mountain bike for the past seven years and have been using that in the few tris I've done so far. My dad bought me the mountain bike in 2000 for Christmas and when I told him I had bought a new bike, he asked me if I was still going to ride the bike he bought me. Of course I said yes. I'll keep that bike as long as I can not just for sentimental reasons, but also because it's a great bike. Maybe I'll do some offroading triathlon sometime or adventure racing with it!
Here's to a fun and healthy summer.
