Weapon of pure speed !
As some of you may know, I will race Ironman Lake Placid later this year (25th of July 2010).
Of course, I'm currently in the middle of my training and I wanted to invest in a Triathlon / Time Trial bike.
After I read a lot of specialized magazine and Internet review, I was looking for a good carbon bike, not necessarily brand new. Being in Canada, I was looking for a local brand and this kind of limited my choice to three potential candidate : Cervelo (of course!), Argon18 and Louis Garneau.
I looked on ebay and other website like Kijiji and Craiglist but no luck up to this point. I also use conventional networking and I knew a friend of mine from the Sherbrooke Cyclist Club that worked for ... Argon 18.
I asked him about possible sales and ... here we are ;-) A two year old model used mainly as a demo unit and kaboom ! A medium sized, full equiped E114 : clearly well over what I was expecting. Fully equipped with Zipp404/808, SRAM Rival.
That's really a great bike, good looking and very light (8.2kg without the pedals).
With this weapon of massive speed, only one thing to do : train harder and give my best on race day ! More pictures on the bike gallery.
