Hi all

Right so I have the wet suit sorted now I guess it may be time to look into the possibility of getting a bike (my hybrid isn't really ideal). I'm 5th 4 so I think someone mentioned a 52" frame bike. Anyone have one they are looking to sell at a reasonable price and in good condition?

I have Tri Athy (sprint distance) coming up and was going to do it on my Hybrid but if I can get a bike before it that would be cool. I may look at hiring one for the day otherwise. Plus it would be great to get out on the Saturday spins as there's not a hope in hell I could keep up on my hybrid!!!

Thanks in advance

Hi Gill

Nope still on my hybrid! Thanks so much for the offer but I'm not sure I would feel comfortable borrowing a bike. If anything was to happen to it I would feel awful, plus I haven't used cleats before so race day might not be the best time to try this out!!! If I get the triathlon bug after Saturday I will buy a bike

I saw these on Done deal today - Any advice?

I'm waiting to hear back about the frame size on the first bike.

Thanks again for the offer of the bike, So kind of you :)

I'm not sure about those particular bikes but in general I would say to look into the Bike to Work scheme to see if it's manageable as you get great tax deductions and could potentially get yourself a very nice new bike for a lot less than you might think.
