My bike doesn't take a picture of me!

It has been a while since I want to post this and since we are in the offseason I will give it a try. I know that many of the guys here just want to talk about racing, but you know, we "latinos" always want to get more personal, know a little bit more about who is behind the nicknames.

 

In this case I am trying to know the rigs behind the nicknames. Some of us here love so much our bikes that I think we will get some nice pics here.

And since my bike doesn't take a picture of me I usually take a picture of her...... 

Meet the girls on the flip

Daniela: I am with her for a while now, almost 9 years. I was with her in my worst crashs, nastiest adventure races and some nice rides off course. Her competitive days are gone now and I mostly use her for urban rides and when I hit the tarmac (I still don't have a road bike, I will ask for help on another post). She is a Trek 6500, pretty much standard, except for some XT upgrades. I still love her so I couldn't get rid of her when I upgraded.

Giselle: I am with her for a year now. A pretty happy year. She is a lean, mean, racing machine. Sharp but smooth. She goes wherever my mind goes. And never underestimate the power of 3Kg less. She is a Scott Spark 20 (the frame says 30 but it was the only large frame they had, so I changed all the components to that frame) again with a few upgrades (like the seatpost). I am so in love withe her.

PS to Chris: Sorry for posting MTBs I swear I will buy a road bike soon. :)
