2-time Ironman World Champion Mirinda Carfrae has a new Felt IA FRD and she went to Mat Steinmetz of 51Speedshop to fine tune the fit. Steinmetz has worked with Carfrae since 2009 and this is apparently an ongoing project. According to Steinmetz, "Rinny will admit that she’s not quick to adapt or break old habits on the bike...so, I’ve not moved as quickly with her as I would with others."
In an interview we held with Carfrae after her second Kona title she told us also that she was reluctant to change, but that time it was specifically being too close to the big dance. She however went with the change and grabbed that win.
Carfrae who is 5 foot 3 inches tall and weighs around 117 lbs has done well for sure as an athlete and a person and we now have her numbers and much more in our hands.
