I have been riding to work for the past few months in preparation for my
first triathlon. Last week, two days before my first race, my bike was stolen
from outside the building and I found myself minus a bike and contemplating
not doing my first tri. Fortunately I was able to borrow a bike from a fellow
triathlete. I completed the event and am now totally hooked (even though I am
still without bike) thanks to the positive attitudes of those people I met at
I realize that this may not be the place to post such articles requesting
information regarding bike sales etc., however, I thought someone out there in
"TRI-LAND" may have a bike they would like to sell or know of someone in a
similar situation. I have received compensation from the insurance company
and am now looking for something for approx. $1000 (can).
I am looking for approx. 56-58cm frame with lightweight wheels and aero bars,
preferably STI and clipless pedals.
If anyone has $0.02 to spend I would certainly appreciate hearing any
comments/suggestions on what type of bike I should be considering.
P.S. thanks to all of the RSTers out there who helped to make my first
triathlon a memorable one by providing inspirational posts and many helpful
