I put this on the 'old' forum and didn't get a huge amount of feedback, but having read the daily session stuff, it would appear there are a few more triathletes than before.
Given I can't swim, duathlons are the closest I'll come to ironman, but I've not done one before.
Here's the rub : I've only got a mountain bike which I don't ride hell of a lot to be honest and it's not one of the top of the range sort.However it's good enough for 20-30k required for shorter distance events.
(One locally is 6k run/20k bike/5k run).
I don't know if this is something I'm going to do a lot of , but will the bike be up to scratch for an event of this sort? My running speed should ensure I'm not left behind too much - although even if I'm last I'm not too bothered.
If I get the bug, obviously I'll upgrade the bike,but it doesn't seem worth the cost for my debut.
Sorry to waffle on, but any advice appreciated.
