This kid wants a DH bike for riding to school, so don't be surprised....
I'm not sure if you're trolling or not, so I'm going to assume that you are *not* and give you a completely serious, totally straight answer.
The Giro Advantage II is the best combination aero helmet/swim cap on the market right now. The "fin" off the back of the helmet reduces drag in the water, and then on the bike gives you a substantial aerodnamic savings. It also protects your head from the jostling that always occurs during the mass open-water swim starts, so what's not to like!

Oh man... what's your first race? I really have to be there to watch, the swimmer with a bike helmet. Should be a sight to remember.

I saw someone run a short reverse triathlon wearing a full skinsuit, helmet, and swim goggles for the entire race. :D
It was an offseason race (middle of december last year) where alot of people just go out and have fun. :)
