05:30:2019: Dirty Kanza Bike Set-Up

On June 1st at 6am I’ll line up for the Dirty Kanza 200 mile gravel race in Emporia, KS. What will my ride set-up look like? You probably didn’t ask, but I’ll tell you anyway cause I can’t say enough about my S-Works Specialized Diverge. I’ve already ridden it this year for the following races: Landrun 100, RoughRoad100k, Barry Roubaix 100 and the two-day Tour of Hermann gravel race. I’ve nicknamed her CASH for her sexy black on black swagger and even dressed her up w/some new brown sidewall treads just for the DK200.

Here she is… senior photo-shoot style… now let’s race!

  • 2019 Specialized S-Works Diverge
  • Ultegra Di2 – 2x set-up
  • Easton EC90 SL Carbon Crankset
  • Easton CINCH Power Meter, spindle-based
  • Roval CLX 32 Disc wheel set w/Panaracer GravelKing SK+ 38mm tires
  • Specialized seat pack, Banjo Bros top-tube bag
  • Profile Design ADL Aerobars
  • Garmin 1030 computer and external battery pack
  • Light & Motion Urban 800 lumen

03.12.2019 : #mixtapecollection #iamspecialized

What music gets you pump’d up… pre-ride, indoor trainer ride, in the gym… singing horribly in the car? Specialized Bicycles just dropped their mixtape collection today… so to help celebrate here are my two mixtapes! TrainerHater (rock/rap) is 100 tracks hand selected by me to hate your trainer ride just a little bit less… and a crowd pleaser, sing-outloud-jammer is basically everything DJ GirlTalk has put out in his last 4 mash-up releases!
