Business Record: Triathlete's company to build high tech bikes in Des Moines

Business Record: Triathlete's company to build high tech bikes in Des Moines | Triathlon & Travel: New & Noteworthy | Scoop.it

When Des Moines triathlete T.J. Tollakson competes in Ironman Arizona three weeks from now in Tempe, Ariz., he'll be riding a DiMOND Bike, a high-performance bicycle designed and built by his Des Moines-based company, Ruster Sports LLC.

 

Since May, Tollakson and his business partners have been converting an office/warehouse space at 600 S.W. Seventh St. into a production facility for the highly aerodynamic bikes, which the company will custom design and manufacture for world-class triathletes. With nanotube fiber carbon materials used to build the frame, the assembled bicycle weighs just 17 pounds.

Triathlon Sherpa's insight:

Supporting Tollakson's entrepreneurial cause. Especially so when a speedy gear's a necessary investment in the sport!
