    Thanks for the info, I'll look into the manitou. That's my only complaint about the bike, other than that I'm loving it.

    I bought a Revel 29er about two months ago and am loving it. I thought the same thing about the water bottles, but quickly realized that a camelbak will be the best bet for carrying fluids. ...

    First tri under my belt

    I got up the nerve to sign up for my first sprint tri this past weekend. It went ok, but not without a few obstacles.

    First, I had yet to swim in open water, only the pool. I got in the lake...

    gloves in a sprint tri

    Does anyone bother with taking the time to put on gloves during a sprint tri of 15 miles or less? The only real advantage I can see is if you go down your hands won't get chewed up.

    I finally made up my mind that i wanted to do a triathlon. I can ride 40-50 miles at the drop of a hat, run a 10k at around a 8:15 to 8:30 pace. I got into the pool a few weeks ago to start...
