I'm training for my first and I'm looking Triatholon a road bike in good condition for the conduction. I've been training on a stationary bike at the gym and I need to get the miles done on a road bike. I've looked at the local shops, bicycle Houston Tx, and the prices are pretty much what you want to invest in a bike. Any suggestions on brands and dealers would be great. You know what I found? Ebay. Start with bikes 4 years, aluminum, speeds of at least 10. Travelling in a Tri is much like riding a century. Bike fit and comfort is more important than weight savings. If your position and pedal stroke feels comfortable for you, chances are they are more efficient as well. So invest in a set of Tri Aero Bars. Around $ 60, and practice with them. More than you think you should. If you wait until the day of your triathlon, you dump, clean, stand up, or harm another person the first time that wobbles. Make sure that you are riding and sprinting intervals, not only long distance, low-effort turns on a stationary bike. Anything for one of the largest manufacturers of cycle will suit you well when you are comfortable with the bike, has a great team that can rotate for one hour at high speed, and build up the time in preparation for the day of the race. Good Luck. And for Chris S under me. I agree with one expediture show purely optional, but I've found that come in very handy when you rest your arms and shoulders before or after a long bath. My group Veloton actually restricts their use in TT by 2 or 3 guys in a Paceline riding aerobars last year. A direct result of poor planning by the organizers, but it goes without saying that the group ended up with a broken collarbone, a broken collarbone, three green-stick fractures arm and yards of road rash. They also have to DITTO shoes and pedals. Above all, however, be comfortable. Do not buy new equipment the day before their Tri. If you have not trained in or on it, most likely only hurt you.
