There may well be many threads on a similar subject but am struggling to find them so thought I would start a new. Would appreciate links if you know of threads that will help.
I want to buy my first road / tri bike soon to see how I take to cycling. I do have goals and taking part in triathlons (hopefully next year) are included however before I commit to anything I need to get out and cycle as well as get swimming lessons.
I would like to buy a bike that I can use for triathlons (as a beginner). I don't want to spend a fortune in case I decide triathlons are not for me but I don't want to buy a really cheap bike that may not cope!!!
I do have local bike shops that I can gain advice from however I have assumed they will be expensive if I buy from them. I assume online (like most products) is the way to go for value.
I know nothing about bike makes and models and what's best for me so your advice and guidance is sought. I would also value understanding what requirements I need to consider e.g. round wheels instead of square etc.
I believe now is a good time to buy with new models being available resulting in old models being sold off cheaply.
Thanks in anticipation.
