I get to go and pick up my Pegasus today . . . SO Giddy!

It has been like Christmas everyday for the last three weeks for me.  I saved for new wheels, a computrainer, and scrounged for two additional items. 

 

TODAY . . . I pick up one of those items . . . I’m as giddy as a kid on Christmas morning!

 

Below is a picture of my little beauty before she went into the paint shoppe.  She is getting her own custom paint job.  She is my horse and my angel on the road.  She is fast and mean.  Her paint job will reflect that.   In the next two weeks I will be posting the finished product on here once the new ZIPP disc and front 1080 and componenets are back on . . . but I will at least get to see her today in all her naked beauty!  I miss her and our quality time on the road.  She is my Pegasus!


SNEAK PEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I will post her when she is rebuilt in about a week.  OH MAN I AM PUMPED!

i like it, but you really need a picture of you shirtless riding a tiger while you hold some kind of saber above your head...maybe Amanda is on her knees clutching to the tiger's neck.

I can tell how excited you are! And lucky you! You can ride outside right now. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Brady -

Thanks to your post Amanda has requested that you be hired as artistic designer. Hmm, hard core Brady H - with the title of - Artistic Designer?

Vickie,

I am chomping at the bit!!! It was a frigid 34 degrees this morning . . . I wish I could be in it on my bike!

Dude, came across your blog surfing around. Way to go on the weight loss. I just want to know if I can borrow your wheels for IMFL in November?? (LOL)

IronBob (spawning?? at IMAZ 08) said...

Guess I didn't read far enough... I suppose you will be needing those wheels in November ....

Tri-ing Fat Man said...

Yep Bob, we'll be riding together in November!

Hopefully we can say hello . . . Hopefully before I am passed out!

We will stay connected through the year. I have a condo at Sunbird. I plan on getting all us bloggers together on maybe Wednesday night prior to the race for a drink or two (V8 juice??)

Tri-ing Fat Man said...

Excellent Bob!

Duane, Thanks brother. We are on the move to health aren't we!

Be Brilliant - Everyone!

OMG- that is an awesome bike. I just finally got an actual tri bike- and my first carbon bike too a couple of months ago. Pathetic, I know, that I waited so long. Okay, next time I am in Nola we can go for a ride and sport our new bikes. But, I don't want your bike trying to make my bike feel jealous...

What a sweet looking frame. No wonder you are so excited.
