2012 Blue Triad SL Custom Build

This beauty was recently built, setup, and then shipped to a client in Pennsylvania.  He purchased the frameset on eBay and had it shipped directly to me.  He sent me pictures of him riding his previous bike (Cervelo P2), as well as his previous position numbers (stack reach, pad width, saddle height, etc.) on the P2.  I set the bike up and adjusted his P2 position (which was too long in the reach), based on the pictures and his feedback from riding the P2 position.

- 2012 Blue Triad SL frameset.
- Rotor 3D crank with 54/42 q-rings
- SRAM Red Black Edition Front/rear Derailleurs
- SRAM R2C TT shifters
- Blue Aerus integrated aerobar, basebar, and extensions
- SRAM Red Black Edition front brake
- SRAM 990TT Carbon Brake Levers
- Rotor Bike Titanium Hollow-pin Chain
- ISM Prologue Saddle
- Garmin Edge 500 (not pictured)
- LOOK Carbon Keo Blade Pedals
- Rear Brake is frame-specific TRP side-pull brake

Total, out-the-door, client Cost = $4,425 for custom build above (complete bike w/ LOOK Pedals, Garmin Edge 500, but minus Wheels and cassette)

Total MSRP on everything = ~$8,300

"Coach Kirk has Expert Level bike-building abilities with 'amateur pricing'. His knowledge of Bike Technology is in perpetual growth and understanding. Navigating through the endless sea of information in triathlon is a daunting task. I put my trust in a proven Professional not only in the sport, but also in Business." -- Ryan Clift, new owner of Blue Triad SL below.
