Ok, so I have made up my mind that I am going to do a couple of triathlons later this year. I have my training schedule worked out and am fired up.
I only have one bike... the ol' commuter. It is a old schwinn moab mountain bike that I have put slicks on. It also has lights, rear rack, and toe clips. My question is... is this acceptable for my first few tris? Am I going to get laughed at in the transition area trying to ride this thing?
You guys/gals know how expensive a new tri/road bike can be. It is on the list, but I just can't afford it quite yet.
