In my summary of things I am thankful for, I was contemplating what the theme of my next post would be. I thought about everything I love. Food. Coffee. Kittens. Post-It Notes. The list goes on and on. Then it hit me. I get to ride an amazing bicycle for a living.
I will never take my equipment for granted. If it weren’t for some generous sponsors, well, I guess I would be walking. I have some pretty sweet bicycle swag that I get to use and call my own.
I am thankful for my equipment. Thank you to each of Team Exergy TWENTY12’s sponsors that make this possible! I love to ride my bike, and I love trusting my equipment!
Here is the equipment “roll call”.
Bicycle: Felt F-1. Sweet. Sassy. Freaking fast.
Wheels: Zipp Speed Weaponry. Hot. Very hot. My favorite? The 808 Firecrest Carbon Tubular. They are weapons all right. And I am not afraid to use them. I train on the Zipp 101 Clinchers. Amazing.
Components: SRAM Is there anything else besides SRAM? Double-click. RTC Shifters. Frogs. My name is Alison Starnes, and I chose SRAM.
