The bike listed by Iron-blisters above, the decathlon one, is a great first bike

but like has been said its all about fit

There are a few places around that will let you build a bike from the frame up, i.e. you can change the groupset set, gears handlebars, wheels, saddle, pedals etc



Both seem to be quite good value

solo entrant

 10k laps looks long enough to stop getting bored but short enough not to get lost

how much was the entrance fee for this year?

Already put my holiday request in for next year


Could I do an ironman within a year?

Posted: 21/09/2016 at 08:12

short answer YES

but 2 things worry me, you say you have never swam or biked competitively, do you want to complete or compete?

Most people on here just want to complete but that said we have several age group winners at major Ironmans and a whole bunch of Kona entrants

What sort of times are you doing for half and full marathons?

really hoping to be there either doing or supporting, would be fantastic if we could get some of the original people who did the now legendary "TITs and Flaps" thread back again

Coach Barlos
Basil Brush
Lee the Pea
Dave TES
Seren Nous

and probably a few I may have forgotten about

They allowed us to camp on the park the tri was run from at Nantwich, so right next to T2, seem to remember having pictures of people who have long disappeared from this forum drinking coffee/tea from cereal bowls, happy days
