I think all athletes are obsessed with their
equipement. I have spent countless hours going over various bike parts,
run gear, and all sorts of equipement. After going through several
thousands of dollars I have found two companies that go above and
beyond what I ask of all my equipement.
Competition Cycles have produced top quality frames for
several years. I have ridden titanium, carbon, aluminum, aluminum/carbon,
and titanium/carbon bikes of the past several decades. I can not stress
enough how great the people at Blue bikes have been. I was drawn to
them by the straight forward ideology and interactions I had with
their staff. Instead of just trying to sell their bikes they wanted
to make sure that it was the right bike for me and that I was comfortable
with who I was purchasing the bike from and where I would be getting
service from. They are supporting USAT and also several individual
triathlons. I asked them for the sponsorship because I wanted to ride
a bike that was affordable to the everyday triathlete and still had
near top of the line technology and benefits. Without question the
Blue Triad has been the best triathlon bike I have ever ridden..
Project has filled the gap for me in finding the right
eye wear. Ask any optometrist and they will tell you quality sunglasses
are a must. I had tried several other name brands and only a few worked
but none fit my face correctly. In the end I had resigned myself to
spending significant amounts of money for a pair of sunglass specifically
designed for Asian faces. Then by chance I stumbled on a Rudy Project
dealer and tried on a few of their glasses. With in a week I was contacting
them about ordering a few pairs for myself. I currently race with
the Sportmask Perfomance. These sunglasses are amazingly light, handle
airflow great on the bike and never fog up.
it takes to get me to the finish line.
