I’d toyed with the idea of moving from the Sigma Kronos for quite a while. The primary reason being that the Kronos, despite looking like a time trial bike, is actually 72 degrees. So I did it. I bit the bullet and got a 2010 Cervelo P3 which offer the ability to run a 78 degree setup. So was it worth it? Hell yeah! Ride 2 completed today and the result was a 20mph average for an average HR of only 130 – http://connect.garmin.com/activity/84225729. Average wattage of 235 for an average HR of 130 is good figures. That translates to a 5hr38 Ironman bike split.
1st ride out and I was worried the position was a little too extreme but 2nd ride (not including the two turbos I’ve done) on the road and I managed to hold the time trial position for pretty much most of the 3hrs30 ride. Very encouraging. It normally takes me a month to get used to riding the time trial bike and I don’t think I ever really got fully comfortable on the Kronos. So now very excited about the possibilities at Challenge Copenhagen and of course Wales.
