So, I have 4 bikes - and I have no clue which one would work best for my first triathlon next fall.
A Schwinn Mountain bike with Chromolly Frame, 18 speed, 26 inch. Hard tail. Its a really decent bike, in pretty good shape.
Second is an old Western Flyer, I'm pretty sure its a crap bike but it was good for the last city I lived in since it has the fat road tires (hybrid?). Its a 10 speed with friction shifters (on the handlbars) and dropbars. Nothing special about that.
I also have two older road bikes, a falcon monaco and Schwinn traveler, both are ridable but need a serious tune up and *maybe* a new chain and wires. 10 speed and 12 speed respectively, each have friction shifters on the dropbar. 700cc thin road tires.
Basically I'd just like to know, which option would be best for my first tri? I'm going to be training this summer and would like to train on the bike I ride.
