So towards the end of 2008 Laura Meichan came to me for a new road bike for her 2009 racing season. Being the super elite Cat 2 retired road racer that she is we had to choose the best and go with what she was comfortable with. We chose the Guru Geneo and of course had it made in a custom geometry to fit her better than the previous bikes she has raced on. While she did not race nearly as much as she did in years past when she did race she made it count and always did well and even won some races. Since being spoiled on a custom road bike she quickly lost love for her time trial bike and with venturing into triathlons and duathons (winning her AG or Masters in everyone) she wanted a new triathlon bike. So we have a year old road bike and wanting a new TT bike. With road being her main thing we decided to upgrade the Geneo from 7800 Dura Ace to Sram Red with Gore Sealed cables. We dropped some lbs and improved the function of her shifter area with the better ergonomics of the Red shifters and adjust ability. Her first ride was hilarious as she had crash course on a hard ride of the new shifting system.
Next up...building up her new Guru Magis with her old Dura Ace. Watch out cause she is gonna hurt some age groupers on that one!
