New to the forum as I have a question and wanted to sound out some advice before my first Tri. I have been cycling for 6 months now and jumped in with Trainerroad too, currently just finishing Sweet Spot Base II. I decided to sign up and try a triathlon as my A race for the season and a bit of fun; its a classic so 40Km bike leg.
My question is should I spend some money and upgrade my tyres for the race, currently I have cheap standard 25mm tyres, but I have heard from listening to the podcast a couple of weeks back that tyres are a place to potentially make some big savings. I don’t want to spend loads of money on GP50000 etc (overkill for my level) but can anyone recommend a good comprimise / upgrade or should I just stick with what I have for now (I’m looking do it for big rather than marginal gains at this stage)?
Thanks in advance
