Remembering my conversation with Shanna, I got in touch and soon received a small collection of sweet, light weight kick-ass cogs! The cogs are made from 7075-T6 alloy and are 1/4" wide. Talk about "riding without a chain." Run her cogs and it will feel like you are. Oh, and they are made in North Carolina.

With that order came my first unsolicited sponsorship! Nice! I have been using her cogs now for 2 1/2 years and absolutely love them. They are very light (20T = 35 grams) and durable. I know, I know, it is not a fork or a wheel or a crank, but having one less component to worry about failing or wearing out makes life that much simpler. And let me tell you, I need simple!

What I love about Shanna is her simple beauty. With her never ending smile (check out all the photos) she radiates happiness. She is infectious ... in a good way. Even with her recent run of bad luck, i.e. ACL injury/surgery, she has an upbeat attitude. Every lap of Warrior Creek, she yelled, "Go, Carey!" That was a great motivator for me. Afterwards, when she congratulated me on my win, I told her, "It was the cog!"
What more can I say? We all need to smile more ... like Shanna!
Now, if I could just get my hands on some of her coffee!
