Tim O'Donnell has been steadily rising in the ranks of Ironman pros, most recently taking the win over a very competitive field in Galveston at the Lonestar 70.3. We caught up with Tim for an exclusive interview and a closeup look at his bike, the new Argon E-118. Tim's bike is relatively straightforward, well-appointed, and ready to get down to business. A lot like its rider.
Tim rides Campagnolo, and is now using their new Return to Zero shifters, ergonomically similar to SRAM's excellent R2C shifters. Behind the shifters, you'll notice a BTA bottle. Tim went to the wind tunnel and found, as most athletes do, that a BTA bottle was aerodynamically ideal, saving valuable watts over other solutions.
