Not the best picture but... After some deliberation on size I ended up going with the small. I got such a fantastic deal if I find it doesn't fit I can sell and probably make money! Had my first ride on it yesterday. Quite a bit different than the road bike. Need to go back to the fitter for a few adjustments but I think it's gonna work just fine. Road about 20 miles and had no problem staying in the aero position. Definitely handles differently than my road bike.

Very nice!

Handling is different than a road bike, many refer to it as twitchy or nervous. After a couple hundred miles you get used to it.

Define steep!

Everything is hills where I live, Fastest I have been on the tri bike in aero is 47mph. I think its all a matter of what you get used to. If I rode flat terrain all the time I probably would not be will to go that fast. As is I hit 40 mph on any ride I do around here.

sweet.

Speed safely.

just for fun:  how many times does it say "Trek" on your bike?  I can see 7 on this side alone- so it's at least 14.  Probably higher if you find some smaller ones.  I see 8 "Bontrager" logos on this side of the bike as well.

Treks are funny that way.

I would have rode it home instead of letting it follow me home.

I only had 6 weeks to prepare, so I pushed myself pretty hard while I was training. After my first figure competition, my trainer had me take a week off just to rest and recoup. Was this needed?

A quick and easy 20 minute at home strength training workout. This is a freeweight workout, so only a few dumbbells are needed.

I started riding this spring with the Carnac shoes on Look pedals (with plenty of float). About five minutes into a ride I get sharp pain on the outer edge of my feet, just behind the pedal.
