"Ceepo has thought about everything when building a tri-specific superbike,” says Potts. “Aerodynamics, ride, position, fit, hydration and feel - all to make sure you're fast and ready to run. The more I learn about what my body needs and how to prepare to be my best, the more I need to think about the little things. Ceepo has made my job easier by building bikes to meet every triathlete's needs."
