If you've seen Limitless, you'll recall Bob DeNiro's line, "You'll be wanting some toys."
This is my new toy, the Trek Speed Concept 7.5. It's a bike designed specifically for Triathlons and Time Trials - and the latest addition to my stable. (Have I mentioned that the sport of Triathlon is a money pit?)
While my road bike can get me to the finish line, this Tri Bike is specifically designed to put the rider in a forward leaning aerodynamic position. It's also carbon fiber and decked out with Shimano Ultegra components.
This was a project several months in the making - and it took some considerable time to test out a few different bikes, do several different fittings, get the whole thing ordered and assembled, etc. And now that it's all finished, sure enough the weather has turned Seattle-like, so I've only got 5 miles or so on it thus far.
No bike can turn an average rider into Lance Armstrong, but I do believe that if you feel fast....you'll be fast. This thing is going 20 miles an hour just standing still.
