I found this senzational beautiful feminine Trek bike by chance surfing through the internet about ten days ago. I saw the price, under 1.000 euros. I read different forums in English and German. It was love at first sight! I asked Tibi from Surmont if they would order it for me. I thought I could get it til the end of the month, so that I still have some days to become friends before the 4th race of GrandPrix Triathlons, in Reci Village, where is no mountain bike, but cycling race. 
After Bobo called me yesterday evening to let me know the new bike is already here, I couldn’t believe it. I wasn’t ready for it. As I am a quite emotive one, I had not so many hours of sleep during the night. Emotions about the new bike. I never dreamed about having a race bike, a cycling race bike. And now I have one. A terrible beautiful designed one, especially for women. 
I got very emotional with every step I closed to the shop in Campineanu 24. To feel so much adrenaline and emotion about a bike it must be not a normal thing, from several points of view. White and a dark red, light, absolutely fantastic design. So feminine, so incredible, really!
Alin and Andrei helped me to get used to it a little, because I had to ride it home for about 7 km. And this is a challenge, as it is a very new position, a very new attitude, a very new approach. A New World. Last time I rode a cycling bike was 1990 in Norway. I almost lose my left arm because a severe fall. 
I am still very emotional about the new acquisition and now I have two extreme bikes in my bedroom: a very expensive, masculine and heavy full suspension mountain bike and a very light, price advantaged and beautiful road bike. Both of them are at least quite interesting.
What a pity I have to live in such a terrible place, fearing to be stolen every moment and hating the misery on the roads of the fucking “European Capital City”. I will never understand why has to be Bucharest such a dirty place in Europe. I have two predominant white bike, expensive bikes, and I hate to use them in this misery.
I love my TREKs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The pictures will be posted soon, of course 🙂

  1. Da, Aex, aceeași tactică o folosesc și eu de vreo doi ani, cu câinii. Uneori însă, când am viteză și văd câte unul că mă așteaptă rău la cotitură, știi cum fac? Încetinesc doar un pic, și cu voce foarte tare, de fapt un strigăt, zic un HOP!!!! și se blochează. Dă înapoi și eu îmi văd de drum.

    Faina bicla, s-o folosesti cu spor! Si eu ma gandeam sa intru si in zona de sosea cu un Trek 1.5. Nu de alta, dar neagra langa alba (8000-ul) merge bine, iar trasee sunt gramada si de asfalt.Cat despre caini, nu-i nevoie de sprayuri, eu am gasit ca e suficient sa incetinesti, eventual sa opresti si sa vorbesti cu ei, apoi pornind-o usor, fara sa tipi, sa faci gesturi bruste sau sa arunci cu lucruri in ei.

  3. Thanks, boys!! Florin, nu stiu la ce folosesti tu spray-ul cu piper …. căteii agresivi trebuie intelesi si ei, nu agresati. Si eu ma sperii uneori si mai trag o injuratura, dar mi-e mila de ei. Am doua tactici care dau roade foarteeee bune: opresc brusc si scot un strigat puternic, mimez ca ma dau spre cel mai fioros si mai scot un strigat. Se blocheaza si tace înmărmurit sau pleacă hăhăind. Își iau șuturi din toate părțile, de ce și de la mine?

    Felicitari pt achizitii ( un pic invidios dar dupa cate sacrifiicii faci sa iti indeplinesti "capriciile" meriti toate adimiratia, pt mine esti o sursa de inspiratie si de energie) succese si mai mari la triatlon si la toate iesirile. Am deja si eu 2 bicle dar vreau inca una, un mtb. La mine s-a nimerit ca ambele sa fie Scott .Sper ca Bucurestiul sa devina mai prietenos pt biciclisti. eu merg in fiecare zi pe bicla si cu un spray cu piper in dotare mersul pe bicla este mai " lin" :)). GO, GO, GO ANKA, GO.
