Hello everyone, im a begginner to road biking, A friend of mine got me to start biking with him, and now i am interested in triathlons. I live in San Diego, Ca. I havent done many rides yet but hope to gain some knowledge about the sport from this forum.

That sounds like fun! I can't imagine doing tri's as swimming sounds too scary for me.

Hello The Spaniard, what kind of bike did you get for the triathlons?

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions :) !

i dont have a tri specific bike, i will be doin my first couple of triathlons on a road bike, a lemond to be exact. my friend is lending it to me so i can ride with him and i can do triathlons. I want to eventually get a argon 18 mercury for myself but that wont be for awhile seeing as i have other expenses i need to pay for but hopefully by the end of the year i can have enough saved up to get my own ride. also swimming and running are what i do usually, swim twice a week and run aobut the same each week. the bike is wher eim least experienced but i hope to get accustomed to the saddle as fast as possible sinc ei plan to do teh carlsbad triathlon, which is a very short distance ig uess that would be a sprint triathlone but i dont know. I also plan to do a tour de cure with some friends.

The Lemond will certainly do the job, even if it isn't tri-specific. Good luck with the triathlon, and the TdC as well!
