Earliern this month, TriRig was proud to have four pros riding our Omni bike at Indian Wells 70.3, and we posted a race-day gallery of those fine athletes ripping it up on course. Now, we are happy to share a few pre-race photos of the same athletes, who all met up to compare notes and setups. Enjoy the gallery, and get your own gear in the TriRig Store
TriRig is thrilled to be working with some fantastic professionals. Shown here are Ben Deal, Summer Deal, Mikael Staer Nathan, and Adam Feigh.
Mikael Staer Nathan
Interestingly, Mikael was the only one of our pros at Indian Wells riding Omni in a 2x setup. It's Ultegra Di2 throughout, and cuts a very clean line in the wind. His nutrition and hydration are handled with a BTA bottle up front, mounted directly to his Alpha One, and a single cage behind the seat, held with our Kappa cage mounted to our Beta 45 rear carrier.
Adam has definitely made this rig his own. He is running a combination of drivetrain parts from SRAM, Shimano, and Infocrank. He uses the same Profile Design HC Bottle that Mikael Nathan rides, but his points backwards. Same rear bottle setup: a Kappa cage mounted to our Beta 45 rear carrier. For a little extra nutrition, Adam opted to put an Elite aero bottle on the frame just forward of the seatpost (Omni has mounts just about anywhere we can find a flat surface), rather than use the Beta carrier in double-bottle configuration. Each to their own: Omni can be set up however you like it.
Bonus: Age-Grouper Ruben Garcia
A customer of ours was also at Indian Wells, and sent us these photos of his Omni, which he calls 'Black Mamba' and said he felt like 'a total groupie' when he ran into Summer and Ben. He and his cousin (on the Trek Speed Concept with our Ergo Cups up front) are die-hard TriRig fans, and we are happy to share their photos.
