Good work, I'm just browsing events for next year but not committing to anything... yet. A month or two relaxing before starting the entries but maybe a few runs to keep reasonably in shape see conversation

I use the T1 (I think, the cheapest one anyway...), its fine but 4 months after purchase I want more gadgets (pacing in particular) so think towards the future when purchasing! see conversation

I have in the past used puncture repair patches on the inside of the tyre to seal up small holes (thorn sized) but I must be honest - not sure I would be confident on a larger hole.

I would be interested to hear if anyones done similar and theyve ridden ok see conversation

So so true - with enough sports kit to exhaust you its possible to sleep anywhere, maybe the camp bed was a luxury see conversation

1) Why Compete in triathlons?
I love cycling, love running and wish i was a better swimmer - so its for personal gain
2) What is the goal of competing?
to see what is possible
3) is there any ideal sports nutrition anyone takes aswell as diet?
minimal, powerbar gels during events but no diet supplements see conversation

yes its just more convinient and you can drink whilst still in the aero position.

i use normal energy drink + nuun. the large profile bottle has 2 chambers so you could have 2 totally different drinks on the go see conversation

Or you could spend £20 and get the Profile aero bottle and bracket at Kudu bikes.

I just ordered today - I'd been put off previously by all the tales of spillage/ gatorade showers etc. However apparently the new design has solved all that. fingers crossed.

Even if it still acts like a shower, some electrical tape and well placed bits of plastic bag inside the rubber spill stoppers make the world of difference - also some strong elastic bands to hold it in place and minimise the rattles. see conversation
