Note to self. Buy pedals. And training wheels.

You see, this is the problem with so many triathletes doing all there riding on an indoor trainer. FatPom's kid is riding unassisted before her 4th birthday, and you still need training wheels.

I need a LOT of things. Some talent would be good. At least I'll look the part.

8k. 'Discounted' from 10 I think. That's easily the most I've ever spent on a bike and more than I was originally planning but hey you only live once right. Plus I figure I've had the current TT for 8 years so this one should last at least as long. First time with a power meter too so I'll have to start throwing around some random acronyms and numbers :lol:

One of my colleagues rides a 125cc motorbike which he bought for 4 grand. He can't believe my bike which cost twice as much doesn't even have a motor. Makes you think.

Well here she is. Aint she a beauty! Now a question for the Trannies aero geeks. What to do about hydration? I can put a bidon cage on the seat tube but then should it be normal or aero? And where to put a second one, BTA or behind the saddle? I was thinking an aero bidon cage and bidon on the seat tube and use that for sports drink as I obviously don't wanna throw away an aero bidon. And put a single cage behind the saddle for water, the kind where you can put a spare tube and CO2s etc.

And question 2. It comes with a Pioneer power meter which I think I can pair with my Garmin 910xt but would buying the Pioneer headset be better and just leave it attached to the bike?

And for a bonus question, tyres. It comes with Felt branded tyres that look a lot like Conti 4000s but I'd be happy to swap them onto the training wheels I bought and get new tyres for this bike. And if so I could go 25 instead of 23 width. Thoughts?

Very nice!

What about cage between aero bars with standard bottle and just carry one bottle?

How wide are the rims? But 25s are the go these days 

I'd buy¬†a Garmin 520 for the bike ūüöī¬†
