Check Out My New Tri Bike!!

Today I Finally got my new bike! I started paying for it at the end of September and I finally got to bring it home today. It's a Quintana Roo Dulce Limited Edition time trial bike. It's AWESOME!!! Check out the pictures below.
I have been wanting to get a new bike for a few years now, the last bike I had was a road bike and it was way too big for me but I somehow made it work for over 8 years. My old bike was ok for a half-ironman but I wanted to get a bike that I could do an ironman on.
I got the bike from my new favorite store called V3 Multisport (formerly Quadmultisport for you local readers). It's a triathlon store in Arlington Heights, MA and it has EVERYTHING you could possibly need for a tri. The people who work there are SO nice and knowledgeable! Before V3, every bike shop I ever went  into has been run by untrustworthy people and the prices were always way too high. I really trust the people at V3 ad their prices are great! I really can't say enough good things about the store or the people who work there. If any of you local readers are looking for a good store go check out V3! For you far away readers, you can check out their ebay store (great prices) from their website,  They also have some upcoming free seminars at the store so check out their website!
Here are some pictures of my new bike (we changed the background color in honor of my new bike).

Pink camo, all carbon fiber frame.

This is Marco, he helped me with everything, super nice guy.

Inside V3, I also got my wetsuit from here last sumer.

Check out the pink tape Marco added to the aerobars!

I can't wait til spring when I can ride outside but first I have a lot of work to do on my indoor trainer so I can get used to riding in the time trial position. I'm looking forward to taking some serious time off my tris this summer and since I'm actually in a competetive age group now (25-29), I need all the help I can get. Let me know what you guys think!

Denise said...

D'oh! just lost my whole comment...take two...

thanks for asking about my sister, that was so nice of you. they were actually suppose to go 2 weeks ago but the trip got cancelled at the last minute. So now they are leaving this weekend to go sign the paperwork which will make the little girl legally theirs. they can't bring her home until after april but making this legal is a huge step in the right direction.

Jill said...

You're right-- the bike really is small! But it's such a cutie!

Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it
was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm
thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for rookie blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.

I've been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

I would love to add if you do not currently have
an insurance policy or perhaps you do not belong to any group insurance, you
might well take advantage of seeking aid from a health agent.
Self-employed or those that have medical conditions ordinarily seek the help of
a health insurance broker. Thanks for your article.

Thanks for your post. I would also love to say that the first thing you will need to accomplish
is determine whether you really need repairing credit.
To do that you will need to get your hands on a replica
of your credit report. That should not be difficult, ever since the government mandates that you are allowed to receive one cost copy of your
real credit report annually. You just have to check with the right
individuals. You can either browse the website with
the Federal Trade Commission as well as contact one of the main credit agencies right away.

Thank you for this article. I will also like to say that it can often be hard while you are in
school and starting out to establish a long credit score.
There are many learners who are simply trying to make it and have a good or beneficial credit
history can often be a difficult thing to have.

I have figured out some new items from your internet site about pc's. Another thing I've always imagined is that computer systems have become something that each household must have for many reasons.

They offer convenient ways to organize the home, pay bills, search for
information, study, listen to music and in some cases watch tv shows.
An innovative way to complete these types of tasks has been a laptop computer.
These pcs are mobile ones, small, potent and transportable.
