Sounds like a good plan...assuming you have a personal coach. If not, then the 5k you were gonna spend is for nothing. Just my opinion.

That's in the plan too.

I'm an inexperienced triathlete but an experienced roadie, and I fully understand the distinction between making purchases that will increase your speed and buying cool stuff for your bike because it's just so damn fun. :)

My 2007 Specialized Tranistion Pro was stolen a couple of weeks ago so this is my "new" bike. I bought the bike minus wheels from another STer.

The rear wheel is a homemade disc converted from a Mavic Aksium training wheel. I cut the discs from flat ABS plastic sheets and bonded them to the wheel with Spray foam insulation. And yes it does make the ominous rumbling sound just like a "real" disc.

Fascinating... Do you have more pics of this? I'd be interested in more details.

I don't have any more real close up pics but I can get some. It's not the prettiest thing up close. My next one will be nicer looking and hopefully lighter.

When I have time I'll detail what I did, it's not hard or even as messy as you might think, anyone can do it if they can find sheets of ABS plastic that's not too thick (heavy).

Here's mine just back from a 56 mile ride as a warm up for Florida 70.3. Too windy to run a disk around here for the most part.

New pictures of the current stable.

Cervelo SLC - New custom full aero chainrings. Yes both rings are full aero. Currently 13.68 lbs.



Giant TCR Aluminum - Upgraded to Sram Force. Higher handlebar position for longer rides and chainring off of the SLC. 13.87 lbs.



Pedal Force MT XC - Upgraded to ZTR wheels and XTR disc brakes with Ashima rotors. Weight of build is currently at 18.54 lbs and I am playing with the rear derailleur to see if I want to run a 12/27 on the back matched up with my 44t/30t front.



Giant TCR Aluminum - Winter/Trainer ride. 34t spiderless chainring and set up as a 1 X 10. Custom shifter mount for something different but it works amazingly well. 15.06 lbs.

I saw it on a bike manufacturer's website once.

It's a bit more comfy for me, plus I don't care for how upward turn base bars look with the brakes pointed downward.

Just a personal thing...

Its taken about a year to save up for all the parts, but I finally got it together (today!). She's fast (a lot faster than the roadie on training wheels i was riding at least), and im working on the engine, but I dunno if I'll ever quite live up to its legacy..
