Bring Home Baby Belle the Bike

After much searching, anxiety and concern, I finally found THE perfect bike! It's a Giant TCR Aero Composite Bike, complete with bike computer, aero bars and a double water bottle holder. Don't act like you're not jealous, because this bike is hot.

Currently, the bike I've named Belle is in my car, awaiting a trip to the bike store. The lady I bought it from had mountain bike pedals on it, and I've been unable to get them off and swap them out for the original pedals. These suckers are stuck on like glue. I imagine Belle and I will be spending many hours together in the coming months and hopefully, in the coming years.

I'm super excited to finally have my road bike settled so I can get started with training for my first triathlon. I'm already signed up and ready to go, so now it's a matter of training and getting myself psyched.

And despite the awesome deal I scored on this bike, it's still not my favorite Craigslist purchase. That titled is reserved for Napoleon, who is priceless.

That is one sweet Craigslist find! The bike, I mean. Of course, Napoleon is pretty great, too :-)
