Biking Gear

The cycling section of the triathlon will account for the majority of your total equipment costs, by a large margin. While it’s possible to spend $20,000 or more on a setup for a carbon fiber bike with carbon fiber wheels, a carbon fiber bike helmet, and carbon fiber socks (ok, I made that one up), it is by no means necessary. Even if you’re starting from scratch, it should be possible to buy all the gear you need for the bike section of your triathlon for well under $1,000.
