New Bike Help Needed Please

Can you use PX and Giant on your scheme ?

PX are great value and you can get a Retul bike fit there too so the bike will fit you like a glove.

(i have an N2A and its nice. I was out with my pal who is on a V flash S Works bike the other week and at the cake stop the N2A was the one getting all the attention over the more expensive one ? Go figure ?)

Bike lights

Deffo a min of 2 lights on the back. Smart lights seem to work for me OK.

I've a couple of the torches for the front - they're so cheap that you might as well have one as back up. Incredibly bright and pretty reliable.

Is iit being too ambitious to aim for half-ironman in the next 18months?

Are you riding on the roads yet ? Cos you need to be well used to your bike and getting the miles in.

As Dave did - I went from no triathlons to IM in a year - but I was already into marathons and 100mile bikes. Still not learnt to swim mind you...
