Here she is folks, my beautiful Buttercup. I brought her home from the bike store today after getting fit by Mark at The Bikery (thanks, Mark).
I wasn't sure if my bike was going to be a boy or a girl, but when I walked into the bike shop, she was all set up on the trainer just waiting for me, and I thought, if this beautiful bicycle isn't a woman, I don't know what is! I thought for a while about her name, and I think Buttercup fits great. She's delicate in form, but packs a punch when attacked! (Did you know that real buttercups are poisonous?)
For those of you who are more technically minded (in other words, you're thinking, "I can't believe she actually named her bike"), she is a Cervelo P2 SL Ultegra. She has an aluminum frame, carbon fork, Shimano Ultegra components, and other fancy stuff that I can't remember.
Now all I have to do is wait for the weather to warm up...
