I have three great partners: A2 Bikes, Vision/FSA Components, and Cuore of Swiss Clothing. All three have gone above and beyond to support me, and I encourage anyone whose rooting for me to give them a try. Click on the logos to check out some of their sick deals, brah.
The goal of A-Squared Bikes, a Portland, Oregon-based company, is to bring a high-end bike to every triathlete. They do this by providing a top-end bike without the excessive cost that many companies have embraced, which cuts a lot of people out of the sport or forces them to ride hand-me downs. I’m riding A2’s Speak Phreak this season, which makes use of an integrated front end, hidden rear brake calipers, and finely crafted carbon to cut through the wind without sacrificing stiffness, cornering ability, or superb handling in crosswinds or descents. I’ve ridden dozens of more expensive bikes throughout my years as a professional cyclist and triathlete, and the Speak Phreak is right up there with the very best, and at less than half the price. If you’re looking for a new bike, check them out today. You’ll even have enough left over to afford airfare and race entry fees for the next three seasons.
As many of you are already well aware, Vision and FSA have been creating some of the world’s best components and wheels available for quite a while. I’m lucky enough to be riding their Trimax Carbon SI R-bend aero bars, Metron 81 tubulars, and the Metron disc. Later this season, my bike will also be outfitted with their new crank-based power meter, the FSA Power Box once it becomes available.
Cuore has some of the finest cycling and triathlon gear available anywhere. As in anywhere in the world. It’s truly a game changer in comfort, durability, and style. Style points alone accounts for an additional 15 watts, I believe. The people at Cuore are super passionate about what they do, and that comes across in their unbelievable service and high quality products.

I have been using Hammer Nutrition products for over 13 years at this point, dating back to my rowing days, and they have a huge variety of super beneficial products from gels, to drink mixes, to natural supplements. I’m a big fan of their whey protein, Recoverite, and bars.
The Acupuncture Clinic of Boulder provides exceptional dry needling, acupuncture, cupping, and other forms of physical therapy to help keep you going throughout the year and to get back quickly after injury. Be sure to tell them I sent you.
As I break out from the cycling world and get started on this triathlon venture, I am seeking additional companies to join me. If you’re interested in partnering with me for 2017, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
