Bike Search Update

Let me start this post by saying that I know this post is worthless without pics ... and I promise that they are coming, but I want to wait to post the photos until after my fitting tomorrow.

So, drum roll ...

I am the proud new owner of a Felt B16 Tri Bike and am currently searching for a set of 650c race wheels!

I tried to love the Cervelo P2, heck, I wanted to want the Cervelo P2, but ultimately, I was just much more comfortable on the Felt. I chose to go with the B16 instead of the B12 so that I could put the money savings towards a set of wheels.

I am anxious to get my final fitting tomorrow (although I have 6 months to go back for adjustments) and even more anxious / excited / nervous to ride this weekend to see how she feels on the open road.

My Giant, aka the Grey Suit (see this post item #33 for the name reference), is looking sharp as the hubby gave her a good cleaning -- even a wax job! -- so I can put her on Craigslist. She has been so good to me and I am hopeful to find her a good home.

I am almost feel legitimate now ... almost!

funny I wanted to want the Cervelo too, but it just didn't do it for me. I ended up going Specialized

You get me all excited with the talk of pictures, then NOTHING!!

Look at ebay, 650's are rare, I have seen steals on ebay for some

Awesome decision! Before I got my P2 last year, I had to make a tough call between that and the B12.

Both are awesome bikes. You'll love it.


Ditto on ebay
Now me, I love my P2. But I have never been on a felt. Gonna have to tri one
