The Cervélo P5X of Great Britain’s Susie Cheetham


Ready to race at IRONMAN South Africa on Sunday

Susie says of the bike:

“The front end fully adjustable so gives amazing flexibility to get into any position. It’s pretty much a no compromise bike in terms of position and storage. There’s the option to have another storage box on the middle bottle cage (‘Speedcase’, pictured below), but I’ll run without it on race day.
