Topic - A little advice for a newbie...

Minneconjou Sioux - on 26 Jan 2013

Ok, ok. So I realise that these questions have probably been done to death and if I used the search function I might get to the answer BUT I have some specific questions which I feel merit my own thread.

I've been a runner all of my life but I'm a reasonable swimmer and I commute to work on a very old peugeot bike.

I'm entered into a big triathlon this coming summer (A little less than a half iron man) and need to get a bike for this but also 'cos I'd like to get into this more. I'm pretty clear that I don't need a pure triathlon bike.

So, I'm looking at entry level bikes and have narrowed it down to these:

Specialized Allez or Secteur
Norco Valence
Giant Avail or Defy comp3

Finally, as I will be using this bike for occassional triathlons and commuting am I better getting pedals with toe baskets or clip ins?
