What Bike Should I buy?

What type of bike should I buy?

Before you buy a bike you need to think about a few things

What kind of racing am I going to do?

What are my goals? Sprint/Olympic distances or 70.3/Ironman distances.

What is my budget?

Get a pre-fit!! There is nothing worse than buying a bike without the right fit or doing your homework. LA Tri Club has our own Coach Ian Murray who does both pre-fits and bike fits once you buy your bike.

The bike store where you buy your bike will also do bike fits once you buy a bike.

Do your homework!! Ask other friends/riders, talk to our own coaches Jamie Silbert or Ian Murray. Try to narrow it down to 3 or 4 bikes at the most. Don't overwhelm yourself with too many choices. Go to a bike shop that knows what they are doing and spend time asking questions. Try out the different bikes to see how they feel.
