Wow, it has been way to long since my last post. I have had a couple of very busy weeks at work as well as shopping for a tri bike. I had a fit assessment, went to numerous stores to see what the different brands look like and test road the very few that were available in my size. I really wanted to be sure I was making the right choice. Thanks to those who provided me with very valuable advice. With the help of some birthday money, I was able to take the plunge.
