I am completely new to cycling and triathlons... I have been a runner, US lacrosse player, motorcycle roadracer, but never attempted to take on something as intense as a triathlon. I feel that triathlons are the ultimate test of athleticism, physical, and mental endurance.
I recently purchased a brand new Specialized Allez Elite (not sure if its '09 or the '10 model, i think its the '10) and started riding every other day. I can ride 17 miles in roughly an hour. And can run 5 miles in roughly 35 minutes. My swimming however is horrible and is my main area of focus in terms of improvement.
But me question is, the components on the Allez are all pretty good as far as i understand (Shimano 105). But the wheels and crank i guess could use some improvement (preferably a little lighter weight). Anybody have any suggestions on how to help get my bike a little better set up for a triathlon?
Any suggestions on aerobars as well?
