are used bikes trustworthy usual though as my parents are not keen on a used bike as they dont know the history and nothing can be done if it goes wrong etc...

edward , thats a lot of money to spend on something you dont have a clue about . where are you based ? are there any local tri clubs or groups of people who also compete in tri's .

why not ask if any other cc'ers are local to you who may have experiance of doing tris .

are you expecting to get a new bike or a 2nd hand one ?

i meant at least 20k each time i got out, going out 2 - 3 times a week the local triathlons i have looked at seem to be 20k cycle 5k run 500m swim so i thought this would be a good starting point

i am doing the other training seperate to the bike training as in i will also be running and swimming each week
20k was just a rough figure to begin with and i will build it up as i build up all three aspects of the triathlon
