Updates to the Cervelo P2–Honing my speed weaponry

I had a hoot on the Cervelo P2 last year and certainly was fully converted to concept of a dedicated TT/Tri bike. I am going to be doing a bit more focus on TTs this year and cycling in general so with the snow falling set about to improve the P2 where I felt it could make a difference and/or make it look better/faster at least!

I have also duly named my Cervelo “The Kraken” as I love to proclaim “Release the Kraken” at the start of a TT!

1st off for Christmas I got the Barfly TT Garmin mount, it attaches to one of the bars and keeps the Garmin computer in a better sight line. I definitely struggled with seeing the computer when it was on the stem itself.

It was super easy to install and now keeps the Garmin at a better sight angle.

Next up was to clean up the water bottle area. I was using just a simple round cage and bottle and frankly it didn’t look integrated or good. Went a tiny bit bling with this and picked up an Arundel Chrono carbon bottle cage and bottle. Again snap to attach and looks very nice on the down tube.

Finally I have always wanted a disc wheel, but again just could not see myself shelling out $1000-$2000+ for one of these. I had been following Flo wheels and got in with order #2. The wheels were super late (but flo keep folks up to date) and too late to use last year but still got to stare at it over the winter. They came delivered under $700! Look for a full review once I have some TTs under my belt with this.

Put it all together and my bike I think is very willing to do the business this year. I have finally gotten in some solid seat time on my training bike and hope not to shame this bike with my efforts!

Look for none basement pics soon.

Weather is looking a bit warmer this week so maybe, just maybe, may “Release the Kraken” this week!
