Hey guys .. this is a little off topic but I'm hoping you could help. I am starting to take up triathlons and I am looking for a good resource to find a used road bike (you know the kind you pedal). Any help would be greatly appreciated - Thanks!

I used to do tris out in So. Cal. Got 2nd place a few times in my age group and a lot of 3rd places too. It's a great sport that is unfortunatly not given enough credit and recognition.

You will have lot's of fun and will get in GREAT shape too.

The best thing to do is start checking your local newspapers and also don't forget about E-bay.

I have been outta the hard-core cycling scene for awhile, but here is a good site that I have used quit often in the past. Never got burned, but you know, buyer beware! I hope you find something and good luck in the Tri arena.

MTBR.com, ridemonkey.com, pinkbike.com........

Great sights, many many used bikes for any price range or style desired. MTBR is where I got my bike from a Canadian dude.........
