1. My Giant TCR1 Aero<br><br>
I got it used and it was in perfect condition. Bought it a full year ahead of "Schedule" and when it was still too much bike for the boy... but it has<br><br>
2. My Giant OCR1 (Cycloross/Road bike)<br><br>
It got me into a new fun area of racing ('cross) and allowed me to stay outside longer this year and I'll be outside sooner this spring. Not nearly as nervous on water/etc as the TCR1<br><br>
3. Polar 625x<br><br>
Perfect Tri watch... so far

Polar S725x - I love it. In the summer, when I'm biking a lot outside, I have that thing on at least twice a day!

My Ruby Girl! Although I love my Tequila Sunrise, at 20yo, she was ready to be retired.<br><br>
My coach. If it weren't for him, I'd push way too hard.

1. Polar S625x<br>
2. Wetsuit (aka: thin, black life preserver)<br>
3. Amphipod RunLite Hydration Belt<br>
4. Good goggles. Favorites include Blue Seventy Elements, Visio View, and TYR Socket Rockets.<br><br>
Yes, I am a gear-head.<br><br>
I already had a road bike, so I'm not counting it or its accouterments as tri purchases. If I did count already-owned bike stuff, I'd have to say the Rolf Vector Pro wheel set was the best upgrade there. (Don't bother looking for Rolf, they don't make them anymore.)<br><br>
Another pre-tri-training purchase I find priceless is a headlamp for running. I had the Black Diamond Night Ray. Loved it! But it was lost in (stolen from) transition when I was volunteering. Replaced it with a Black Diamond Zenix IQ... I'm not quite sure yet, but I think I preferred the Night Ray.

My wetsuit, my one piece trisuit, my Garmin, my Seal goggles, and my Fuel Belt are probably the best items I've bought since starting tris.

Eddy Merckx MX Leader, fully lugged steel frame with a 2.2 pound steel fork. Fouth season on the road with that bike and it's solid as a rock even after a fair few crashes.

dude, hate to tell you this but you're supposed to keep the bike upright. Sorry to break the news! <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">
