I got a new bike last night!!!

I got home from work last night and my wife surprised me with this beauty:



I have been looking at them for a while, so she and my LBS guy knew which one I wanted and what size I needed! I go in for my professional fitting tomorrow morning!

Thanks, Honey!

Congratulations - that's a very nice surprise The seattube cutout and internal cable routing are very cool. Hope you enjoy your new ride.

Thats awesome, that bike leaves me loving some things, but the welding on the front end always disappoints me. Still an amazing bike in which the pros far outwiegh the one con. It has a lot of the little things entry level tri bikes usually don't.

Have fun and get those bars dropped a little eh?!!!!
