Bike Porn and Other Random Things

Bike Porn...
I apologize if some of you have already seen this...but you know, you can never get enough good Kestrel bike porn.
Trying out the snow tires
On the trainer.  My old bike Rico in the background sulking.

I rode 2 hours on my trainer with her, and I had to make a saddle change, but other than that, all was smooth sailing.  I am working on getting a good fit in the next few weeks, but I will say that right out of the gate, this is a comfy bike.  I really have to get used to shifting with my fingers, it is kind of weird for me.  Can't wait to get this baby out on the road!

Other Random Things...
I feel so fortunate to be part of Team Trakkers.  The generosity of our sponsors really humbles me.  This time I get to share some discounts with you.  I've updated my side panel with a few awesome discounts that YOU can take advantage of.  The first is for $10 off any REV3 race and the second is for 15% off at All3Sports

On the pool front, I am finally finding out the difference between hard and easy. It used to be all hard.  If only my nostrils would stop rejecting the chlorine, I would be all set.  Nose plugs are ordered.

If I were to do a giveaway on a earpiece fit kit for H2O Audio would anyone be interested?  H2O Audio sent me one to review and one to give away. But I feel weird only giving the fit kit without the system, but it is all I have.  Thoughts?

I am addicted to Brad Meltzers Decoded.  I am such a geek.

I am way behind in my blog reading. Hope to multi-task during the Superbowl and get caught up.  I really don't care who wins, once the Patriots were out I quit paying attention.  Caratunk seems to be pro Packers.  Anyway, I hope to get a little caught up tonight.


This week:
Skiing: 37 miles
Swim: 3000yds
Bike: 55 miles
Run: 8 miles

I don't really care who wins the Super Bowl either. I am interested in the commercials though..ha ha!

I hope you're having a good weekend!

Awesome bike!

There is no such thing as too much bike porn. Of course, most peeps want to know how Bailey is handling the new member of the family.

If nobody wants it, I'll take the H2O stuff off your hands as a public service.

Are those Shimano TR31's clipped in on the drainer? By the way, there is no such thing as too much bike porn..... gets me drooling for a new bike!

Jennifer said...

That is one sexy bike. Jealous!
Re: giveaway, it would be awesome if they gave a pair of waterproof earphones. I got a waterproof iPod shuffle for Christmas but do NOT like the earphones I got! Definitely looking for some new ones but can't really justify buying another pair.

Ironman By Thirty said...

Only 8 miles running.... oh wait, 37 miles skiing?!!?! Haha. You racked up some crazy fitness this past week.

After all the snow we got last week and seeing the pictures from your trip, I started scouring Craigslist for some XC skis. Haven't found anything promising yet.

Love the bike! No such thing as too much.

my latest h2O audio setup just went out on me
the audio is all f'd up
this is the second set I have been thru in the last year...I was gonna get the guy email address from you he posted a comment on one of your posts awhile back?

i notice they now make a separate stand alone casing for a 1st or 2nd gen shuffle with separate earbuds so if they crap out you can replace them.....dont see the same thing for my 3rd gen shuffle its one full piece unit earbuds and casing...

hmmmmmm

Kris said...

I'd definitely be interested in the H20 fit kit. I really should order one, cuz I haven't been using the case because I can't get the ear buds to seal.

Kris said...

Oh...nice bike too! That's one of the models I'm looking at, so I'd love to hear how you like it. :)

Shannon said...
