Blue T16 2008

Felt B12 2008

Ok everyone who enjoys tri will somehow toywith the idea of getting a cool tri bike. Hoping to look really good on it and improve on the bike leg during each race. Now i’m looking at these 2 bikes above that is somewhat at a touchable price point yet offering tip top tri bike set up in top of the shelf range. Bikes like this will be a dream to own and ride for a amateur weekend triathelete. Maybe i should set a goal for myself – buy it only after 10 events.

BLUE Rc5AL 2007
This is my current bike. Its not very popular and well ranged in local showroom which doesn’t provide the justice it actualy deserves. This is a very understated brand and bike in general. Very good ride quality and i like it alot since i was able to custom build it to my liking.

Frame: Blue Rc5AL 2007
Groupset: Ultegra SL
Saddle: Selle Italia SLR
Pedal: Time
Contact Points: ITM
Wheelset: Fulcrum R7

Felt S22 2007
This is my first serious bike. Very smooth ride and light – ideal for entry tri beginners. Components are very decent for the price tag. Sold it in the end to change to a road bike.
