Finally the day came. I got my new triathlon bike. Prior to this oh so glorious day I was riding a Univega from when the dinosaurs roamed the earth. Now don't get me wrong I love that clunky, awkwardly unshiftable and strange noise making bike to pieces. But after the 2012 season I decided I was going to be taking triathlon a bit more seriously... quite a bit. First things first. Find the perfect bike fitter. After reading some excellent reviews online from triathletes I booked a fitting at FinalFit at the LA Velodrome. Jim was awesome. He talked me through using Speedplay pedals, got me comfortable on a triathlon bike and helped me pick the perfect one for me. The technology he uses is wayyyy ahead of your local bike shop that says they do bike fits. Plus he isn't affiliated with any company and doesn't sell any products so don't expect to come out of there with something you don't need. I can't say enough positive things about my experience with FinalFit. So if you live in Southern California please do yourself a favor and go to FinalFit.
Jim making sure everything is absolutely perfect on my bike.
So here she is Felt DA4. Took her for my first real ride on Sunday and I feel like I went from a moped to a Ferrari. Hopefully this helps me knock a few minutes off my bike time but even if not I still look good. :-)
