Thrifty Triathlete

I love new tri gear ... when I can afford it! This sport gets expensive, so I am always looking for inexpensive gear that will help my race performance.

What do you do when you can't afford new wheels? Get new racing tires!
Want to give your bike a face lift? Get new bar tape!

Want to save a couple of seconds in transition? Try Xtenex laces.

I wore them on my run today and I loved them! I was able to slip my shoes on easily but they still fit well ... and at an MSRP of $10, this is an inexpensive way to shave some precious time off your T2 time. I will let you know how they work at my race tomorrow. One thing is for certain, no more photos of me in T2 sitting on the ground tying my shoes!
