greetings from Chicago

New job has a gym/shower in the building, so I can once again ride to work, about 23 miles a day. My previous bike was stolen, so my budget was $100. I bought an old Schwinn for $80. Of course I'm already thinking about better wheels, cranks, etc.

Haven't ridden the train in over a month, and plan to participate in the Chicago triathlon in August.

Joined the forum to find advice on...
1. body positioning (am i doing this correctly?)
2. nutrition (am I eating enough to properly fuel and recover?)
3. upgrading parts (can I go faster? more efficiently? without spending too much?)
