Last week when Mac (best husband ever) got home from a 9-day work trip, he walked in and asked me to go to the basement with him. He had a surprise for me that had actually been sitting in the basement the entire time he was gone - a new bike. I was SHOCKED! I've had my pink CD0.1 for over 2 years now and I still love it - I expected to ride it until it gave out on me.
Well - I got to pick up my new bike today - it is SO beautiful!
The guys at Urban Tri Gear built it up so that its identical to the set up of my CD0.1 and from the moment I got on it today, it fit like a glove. I'm not a bike expert like Mac, but I can tell you that this bike has my favorite ISM saddle on it, a brand new, super cool ZIPP bar set up and Di2 shifting. I am so freaking excited to get this baby out on the road. It also has my ZIPP race wheels on it right now since it's almost race day!
I hope the weather cooperates with me tomorrow morning, because I REALLY want to take a spin outside before I drop it off for Tri Bike Transport to take it to Galveston. Yep - I picked it up tonight and I have to send it away tomorrow. BUT, I get to ride it next week in Texas - nothing like a new bike for a race (I think that might break every part of the "don't try anything new on race day" rule.)
Mac and Jake are seeing Green Day tonight - I think I'll just put the Illicito next to my bed to keep me company!
