This is one tricked out TT bike!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Since obviously a lot of people missed it.

This guy holds the record for the farthest distance travelled in 24 hours.

Its not all about reaching for the bottle. First of all you may just want to carry more liquid as some triathlons are quite a bit longer than a TT and second you may want to carry *your* liquid vs. whatever is being handed out.

I got it BEFORE it was repeated in bold. The bike still looks ridiculous. Aesthetics and function are two very different things. All Fred gadgets have a function...
