What We Ride: Doug Ludwig’s Felt IA XX

 

Name: “Dangerous” Doug Ludwig

Position at TPC: Facilities Manager

What you ride: 2017 Felt IA

 

 

Why you ride it: It’s so fast and stunning, with some of the deepest tubes you can get on a triathlon bike. Electronic shifting is an absolute game changer.

 

 

Fun Facts: I sold my ski and wakeboard boat to fund this build. This bike started as a new IA 16. After a few months of riding in stock form, I stripped it down and put on a new Shimano 6870 Di2 group, brakes, saddle, and wheels to make it into my dream bike.
