In preparation for the triathlon, far too many people seem to emphasize the type of triathlon bicycle than with what they can do with it. Some even spend ten grand on a top-of-the-line bicycle and forget all about the thing that matters most- proper use.
At some points of the race, competitors believe that lighter and faster bikes have the most advantages. This isn’t far from the truth, but this does not tell it all. After all, the manner of use and the person’s actual capacity to optimize the bicycle will create big differences.
For some unknown reasons that only you would somehow realize, a single bike would fit you. It won’t matter how expensive it is or how old. Like your favorite running shoes, your triathlon bicycle would suit your style, needs, and ability. It is just a matter of trying on different bikes and getting a feel for each of them.
Sure, the technologies used to develop a $10,000 triathlon bicycle would actually create some edges over those who only ride on $250 bikes. Nonetheless, never forget that the bike period is only a part of the three areas of discipline triathlon covers. And the bike itself is only a single component of the bike transition. You must still consider and look eye on other principles that will lead you to the last transition stage.
Say you are riding on a high-end, oozing new triathlon bicycle yet bargained so much on the benefits it might give you. You surely have the speed, the style, and the envy of the onlookers and fellow triathletes. But without proper skills in its operation, or proper planning during the course, and even the endurance to continue biking after losing much strength during the swim stage, your “nice bike” would be turned into nothing.
It might be cool to pass fellow racers on the initial run, yet once they passed you over with their dreaded looks, you’ll wish that you’re on a $300 beater. (That way, you would at least have an excuse of being beaten).
