    Greetings from the U.S. Air Force Academy!

    Hello,
    My name is Brandon Bannon. I will be attending the Air Force Academy as of June 24th! I am a strong Christian who loves to run and push myself to the limit. I am looking into buy a tri-bike and have begun saving up. I am looking to make a big investment so if you have any advice on brands or dealers please let me know!

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Welcome Bkbannon!

    Just curious, when you say that you are a "strong christian", do you mean that you are a deeply religious guy, or just a strong guy in general who happens to be christian?

    Welcome, Brandon! I am retired USAF and wish you all the best at the Academy. Curious though, how much time you will be having to ride in the coming months...understand your 1st year at the AFA is rather, uh, busy!

    Strong Christian meaning my relationship with Christ is firm! It's not so much about religion and procedures as it is about a personal relationship my friend However, I like to think I'm strong physically too haha

    Oh yes!! I will be plenty busy for the first year...however the Academy has a competitive triathlon club that I am considering joining. I am going to tryout for the CC team and if I don't make it the triathlon club will be my pack up plan. I don't plan on purchasing a good bike soon but I just want to do some good research for down the road.
