Perfect Day Right Here, Right Now!

Tell me, what is better than having your weekend start on a Thursday? Perhaps your day starts with early morning masters and you discover behind door #1....it's
Ultra Distance Day!!! WoooooHoooo! On hearing this you let out a high pitched "yeeha" in the lane, while your lane mates begin to groan. Fear not my fellow lane mates, TGP will lead you to the promise land! THEN.... (this is when it really gets guuuuud)

As the sun is shining ever so brightly and everyone else is at work, you go to pick up your brand new sparkling steed that has been waiting for you for weeks at FitWerx in Peabody MA.




This is Dean Phillips, co-owner and a bad ass triathlete himself, making some final measurements before the last of the build.

This is Mark, one of FitWerx top notch mechanics putting on the final touches: pedals, PowerTap, bar tape and cages for me after doing the inital build. Thanks Mark!!


Here I am looking all too happy on my new bike! Thanks Dean!

And yes damn it, I'm still wearing FLEECE top and bottom!!! It's still CHILLY here!
