I wanted every possible advantage in riding my fastest for my upcoming triathlons, so this season, I invested in a tri bike. I looked at several, but when it came right down to it ... I just wanted another TREK because my Trek Madone Road Bike has never failed me!
I found my dream: The TREK SPEED CONCEPT 7.0 WSD (and it's pink!) I went down to my local bike shop and ordered it. Sight unseen and without even test riding it. It was THE ONE! I knew it. How could it not be, afterall, it was a TREK and it was PINK! (plus, it looks fast!)
Here's how it looked when it first arrived:
Of course, I had to take it for a test ride. But, I knew I would love it! Even with the reflector's and tester pedals. It rode like a dream!
I bought Shimano clipless pedals and brought my dream bike home. It is too good to just sit in the garage.
It's part of the family now! She needs a name. The search was on. I asked all my friends for name suggestions for my bike. The winning name was : TRIXIE. (personally, I think it sounds like a stripper name, and it makes me chuckle. The true name means: BRINGER OF JOY! ... Yes, pun intended) ;)
After a couple hundred miles, it was time for a new seat! Two reasons. One, the stock seat was very uncomfortable in the aero position and for long rides lasting more than 2+ hours, the girl parts were not so happy with me. Two, this saddle is one my coach recommended. I chose the ISM Adamo Road Saddle. I debated between the road and the race saddles, but after reading many reviews, I picked this one. I LOVE IT and couldn't be happier!
One last thing this great bike needs ... RACE WHEELS!!!
Zipp 404's 650c clinchers. They are wicked FAST!
