Matt Russel with his Omni » Matt had this to say about his new bike: 'I had multiple offers for the 2019 season. But I have been a long-time customer of TriRig, and admired their innovation and unique approach in the triathlon world. I was really excited to get on the Omni. I build up all my own bikes, which is often a long and frustrating process. This was the first time in my career that the build was a truly fun process. Everything is completely straightforward and really easy to adjust.'

Bike details 

Probably the most fun thing about working with Matt is how open he is to making incremental changes, and always asking questions about how he can improve his setup. So although this gallery shows his bike setup in its initial configuration, don't be surprised to see some small changes over the year as things progress and we do more testing.
