I was lucky enough to find a vintage ad for the bike I’ll be picking up today. I can’t embed the image, so here’s the link to the 1987  Falcon Triathlon 105 and a description of the ad below.

Description: The top of the ad shows the side view of a totally sweet road bike with a white saddle and drop handlebars and a red frame that says “Falcon” on the down tube. Below the bike is the text “Route 66” with the background of an American flag. Below that are three black icons depicting a person swimming, cycling, and running. The text of the ad reads:

For the serious Triathlete, Falcon are proud to present the Triathlon 105.

As part of our exclusive ‘Route 66’ series, this unique bike has been engineered to meet the exacting demands of American riders. Which means it comes equipped with the very latest in state-of-the-art componentry.

Built with Reynolds 531 tubing, deploying full Shimano 105 ensemble with SIS gearshift and Biospace chainset, it offers a classic combination of pace, power, and portability.


I’ve named her Blue (don’t ask me why, I really don’t know). I can’t wait to take her for a spin!
