On race day I plan to tap into as many ‘free speed’ categories as possible. Most of my training VO2Max sessions were completed on my Felt FC road bike while OverUnders have been completed on a Storck Aero2 and more recently on a Ventum One
time-trial machine. Even though I have only banked a handful of sessions on the Ventum so far, it is easily the most confidence-inspiring TT bike I have ridden. Their 58cm frame fit like a glove and their customer service is unlike anything I have experienced. During his drive from Dallas to Tucson, Ventum’s National Sales Director, Chris Blick, even hand delivered the bike despite The Woodlands being a considerable detour in his drive path. After a few days in Tucson, Blick will back in town to race Ironman Texas himself, raising money for Smile Train in the process (if you’re inclined,support Blick's fundraising mission
The bike only required a minor seat height adjustment and voila, it was ready to be hooked up to the Kickr for yet another ass whooping. With sessions being so short and sweet (most are either 1 hour or 1 hour and 15 minutes total time) I have not yet tried out Ventum’s proprietary hydration unit which holds 1.4 liters and sits flush atop the top tube.
