Tri2Remember Sprint Triathlon Gainesville, GA 2012

Tri2Remember -- Laurel Park  Gainesville, GA  Sprint Triathlon 400 yd swim 13 mile bike 5k run
We traveled to Gainesville, GA on a Friday afternoon through hellashus ATLANTA trafic to make it to Baxter's Multisports in time to pick up our race packets. There was a Transition clinic going on when we got there so we sat in on that and learned the best way to set up and go through your transition area in a triathlon. Baxter's was a big store and had a lot of Swim equipment and bicycle stuff with a lot of running shoes to choose from.

The swim start was a Individual time trial type start. 2 at a time hung of each side of the dock and started there swim. The bike route was very hilly yet senic with a couple of great lake Lanier views.

The run was all inside Laural Park, Again with great senic views of the beautiful lake Lanier. as usual my PUMA Night Fox complete running shoes made for a pleasent run.

I rode my HARO escape Mountainbike with Full Knobbie 2.3 MAXXIS Tires. It road flawlessly as I passed several roadies on the many hills.

Hayes Stroker RYDE rear hydraulic brake

Hayes Stroker RYDE rear hydraulic brake. I Bought this Hayes Stroker RYDE hydraulic brake system to replace a +5 year old Hayes Nine rear Hydraulic Disc Brake.
hayes 9 disc brakes
The Hayes Stroker RYDE rear hydraulic brake hose was a little long for my Large HARO Escape. The Hose bows out a little up front..

My buddy has the Hayes Stroker Trail but I opted for The Hayes Stroker RYDE rear hydraulic brake was a direct bolt on replacement from AMAZON, and within my budget.

I removed the old Hayes HFX-9 rear disc brake

and bolted on the Hayes Stroker hydraulic brake.  The Hayes Stroker RYDE rear hydraulic brake works Great so far. No squeaking and good stopping power on the trail.
