This year I will be doing my first tri's. Starting with a sprint and hopefully moving up from there. Since I already have most everything else (bike, hydration, running shoes, etc) but I don't have a wet suit (not sure if I want to invest yet) or a tri suit.
So my question is aimed more at tri suits. Worth it? One piece or two? Any suggestions on where to get either without breaking the bank? I don't mind moving up in quality/expense as I continue but would rather start out slower.
Lastly, how does these items differ from regular road wear? Is it really not feasible to wear road shorts in the water and run in them provided the chamois is thin enough to run in?
Thanks for any insight.
