Hi Charlie,


I have the same problem.

I've been told by a friend that swimming is the most technical out of the three disciplines.

Best would be to be part of a swimming club. Or a triathlon club with swimming coaches.

I'm mainly training on my own. And just bought 'Swimming Speed Workouts'. No idea if it will help or not, but I will give it a go

If you are on the West side of London, I'm selling my Fuji D6 1.5 bike (check the sale section of this forum).

I went for a Kronos-9 from Evo2max.

Stunning bike. However, same for Canyon I suppose, it's sold online and you will have to make all the settings yourself if possible (on mine I can't raise the handle bars).

Therefore, I would advise to go to a shop and go for Argon or Felt and make sure they set it to your needs.

With your budget, add a power meter.

I haven't seen any.

A workaround would be to use Strava. But if you want to split your swim / bike / run, you might loose time starting / stopping Strava between each activity.

I use to have the Garmin 920 XT. Really good for swimming, cycling and running, plus the odd sports (skiing).

The downsides were its the look (a bit bulky), and while I've never competed in half / full ironman with it, I'm not sure it would have been able to record it all.

I now have the Suunto Spartan Ultra. And completed my first 70.3 race with it. After 5h35mn the battery was still at 57%. It looks great, I'm wearing the watch all the time. 

It comes at a high price, but so far it's worth every penny.

I think all watches those days offers auto sync to Strava, so it's not a differentiator. but Suunto creates a movie of your activity, whereas Garmin doesn't (but if you pair Strava with Relive you will get something similar)

Both watches give time

Selling my Fuji D6 1.5 2013 58cm + ZIPP 404 wheel set (front and back) with Continental Grand Prix 4000 tires + original wheel set (Oval) + Speedplay pedals + elite bottle cage + front Pro-Design hydration system (not used much as straw is too short for me!).

In very good condition. 1000k (might be slightly more if I haven't logged all the rides). Used 95% of the time in triathlon races. I'm 1M83 (6 foot) and I think it's the maximum it can take.




Somehow can't add more photos.

The photos are:













I can provide more on request.

I have a Fuji d6 1.5 with a Shimano 10 speed cassette.

I have also a Pro-Lite Gavia wheel, probably 50T.

I'm looking for a free hub as the ones provided with the wheel are too big ...

Is this one fine?:
