Vavachi, My Beloved “Beer” Bike

This is not exactly my "first" bike but, it's the one that got my serious cycling to what it is today.  I bought a Cannondale tri bike that someone ordered and customized I mind you, but, they never picked it up.  So...I got it for a steal.  I rode that bike in my first ironman, she was there when I "stunk" a triathlon and she is still there now.  Yes she has been up graded with new wheels, drive train, seat, bars but, the frame the same.  Well, not exactly the same.  You see it was an awful color of grey and yellow with large Cannondale shadow labels on it.  So.. well a lot of beer drinking later...the frame is now decoupaged in beer stickers.   My bike aka Vavachi, a weird spelling for the music term quick, spirited and lively, is well known as the "beer bike".
