We don’t often get caught up in Super Bowl Sunday, but when one of the teams just happens to share their colors with the Aerogeeks, we had to pick sides.
It was a fun week at Aerogeeks HQ. For the past nine months we had been asking ourselves a single question about the Trek Speed Concept 7 Series Project One – was it everything we had hoped it would be when we published our First Look? Turns out the answer was yes, and more! Be sure to check out our longest review ever! We also received a request from our friends over at SportRx. They wanted to see our custom Rx Racing Jackets paired with our Project One 7 Series. Their wish is our command (oh, and we threw in our Hawk Racing kits on top!).
The Trek wasn’t the only article we published this week. We also shared our first ride impressions on the Specialized Evade Tri, and Coach Tommy shared his thoughts on race nutrition. Make sure to take a look and let us know what you think.
For those visiting for the first time—welcome! One of our favorite ways to showcase our readers is our Readers’ Rides album on Facebook. You can check it out at http://on.fb.me/12jEqE3. If you would like to have your bike featured in our album just tweet us at @AeroGeeks, Facebook message us, or email us at info@AeroGeeks.com.
This Week’s Posts
Wednesday – Specialized S-Works Evade Tri – First Ride
What the Pros Ride
We won’t deny that we’ll typically take a second look at the products the pros ride. While it doesn’t always mean the product is right for you, the fact that it’s being used at the highest level means that it’s probably worth taking into consideration.
GU Energy Labs recently announced that it teamed up with Slipstream Sports to serve as one of the worldwide nutrition suppliers to the UCI World Tour squad Cannondale-Garmin Pro Cycling. And if you know the Aerogeeks, you’ll know we are suckers for argyle. We also happen to ride quite often with GU gels and GU brew. So for us, this is an awesome match!
We also have been spending time with a Wahoo KICKR (stay tuned for our review coming soon), which just happens to be the trainer Team Sky is using for pre-race warm up and post-race cool down. We’ve been using the KICKR for just about three weeks and are pretty excited about it.
The first race of the season may still be a few more months out, but the mailroom is starting to get busy again. Adamo sent us their new PN 1.1 saddle. The 1.1 share the shape of the Attack but adds extra padding. And Louis Garneau sent us their new Tri-400 shoes featuring a carbon outsole and a two-way boa enclosure. They also sent us the new Course M-2 Triathlon skin, which features a zip-up top incorporated into a full-body design. Stay tuned for our reviews!
- Kask Infinity – We are really starting to love these active aero helmets, especially in cooler weather. Keep the vent closed at the start of the ride to warm up. Then open it once the sun comes up if you need to cool down.
- Fly 6 –We had the Fly 6 out on a ride and got some great footage of a peloton overtaking us (unfortunately they overtook us without any warning or heads up, which is simply not safe). We like having video footage of our rides just in case the worst ever happens.
- Nathan Sports Light Bender – We have been using the light benders for almost every ride and run since we received them. Stay tuned for our final thoughts.
- Garmin 920xt – For the past few months, a 920xt has been on our wrists every waking moment of the day. We think it’s finally time to share our thoughts.
