I ride Cervelo Bikes because I truly believe they are the best engineered and best riding bikes in the
Woolistic makes the best wool clothing I have ever used. It looks great functions great and it is
different than the run of the mill synthetic clothing everyone else wears. When you are climbing it
breathes well, when you descend you don't get chilled and if you want to "hang out" after your ride
you will look great. Believe it or not wool will not retain odors so you don't have to worry about
sinking up the joint!!!
If you are looking for a high quality well built fixed gear bike you might find Milwaukee Bicycle Co. a
good option. I RACED A MILWAUKEE IN "THE TOUGHEST 48 HOURS IN SPORT" the Furnace
Creek 508. That's 508 miles and 35,000 feet of climbing through Death Valley and some of the worst
road conditions imaginable.
Milwaukees are made by Waterford but branded Milwaukee. They are round tube, steel frames,
with road geometry and horizontal dropouts-- that's not that common. The frames have a slight slope
to the top tube but otherwise have a very classic look to them. Ben's Cycle is the exclusive retailer
and they are open to custom options such as, but not limited to: paint, decals, brazed-on badging, and
components. Give them a call and tell them I sent you!!!

We do our best product research scaling the Tetons, crossing the Grand Canyon or clinging to a sub-6
minute pace 20 miles into a marathon- because what needs to be improved often becomes clear only
under extreme conditions. In fact, nearly all of our best ideas for new products hit us when we're
training for, or competing in, trail hundred-milers, epic mountain bike rides, adventure races, and
triathlons. Every race, ride or run is an experiment in redefi ning the very notion of "humanly
possible" that requires not just the heart of an athlete, but also the mind of a scientist.
Nite Rider lighting systems are the best lighting systems available. They have a wide range of lights
to fit just about every application from mountain biking, commuting and Ultra Cycling. I strongly
recommend you evaluate which light is right for you!! I use the Moab when I need the absolute
longest burn time and the brightest HID light. I also you the MiNewt series for commuting and for
Double Centuries and unsupported Brevets when light weight and bright headlights are required.

Thank you Dave for your support in 2008 and beyond.
I will be using the Speedfil hydration system on my 2008 Furnace Creek 508 race. I have been using the Speefil for my
training miles on my Cervelo P3C. I opted for it because one bottle carries 40 oz of fluids and the Cervelo P3C only has
on bottle cage mount. It is the equivalent of two small water bottles. I can't stand to have the bottles behind the seat nor
do I like the bottle in front of the bike between the aerobars. Both of those less desirable positions cause the bike to be
top heavy and unstable not to mention inconvenience and mess of splashing. Please consider this hydration system as
your first choice for your TT or Triathlon bike!!!!!
Aerodynamic – Wind tunnel developed
Easily refillable on the fly
40oz. + fluid capacity
Frame Mounted* to optimize handling and minimize drag
Exclusive dual splash resistant design
Hands free drinking
Bite valve holds fluid at the ready
Less weight and clutter than multiple bottles
