Greetings from the U.S. Air Force Academy!

Hello,
My name is Brandon Bannon. I will be attending the Air Force Academy as of June 24th! I am a strong Christian who loves to run and push myself to the limit. I am looking into buy a tri-bike and have begun saving up. I am looking to make a big investment so if you have any advice on brands or dealers please let me know!

Welcome Bkbannon!

Just curious, when you say that you are a "strong christian", do you mean that you are a deeply religious guy, or just a strong guy in general who happens to be christian?

Strong Christian meaning my relationship with Christ is firm! It's not so much about religion and procedures as it is about a personal relationship my friend However, I like to think I'm strong physically too haha

Oh yes!! I will be plenty busy for the first year...however the Academy has a competitive triathlon club that I am considering joining. I am going to tryout for the CC team and if I don't make it the triathlon club will be my pack up plan. I don't plan on purchasing a good bike soon but I just want to do some good research for down the road.
