My blue heaven

Following up on the golden delicious Basso posted a few weeks back, here’s my new competition bike. The bike I had the last three seasons was stolen from my local bike shop when it was in for repairs last year, and the less said about that the better.

The new one is a Trek Equinox TTX 9.0, which was a top of the range bike a few years back but has since been superceded by superior bikes. So, what was once a €4,000 bike can be picked up used for a cool grand (from a bike shop in Germany, lucky me). And this is in keeping with my rule of never spending more than €1,500 on a bike. I’ve been out for some rides and this bird flies. Looking forward to racing with it, and of course to still getting passed by old guys on superior bikes with superior “diets”.


I’ve pimped the frame in Purathletes style.
