We got a letter from Tommy de la Cruz, an aquathlete who’s planning to do triathlons in the future. He already has a mountain bike but is thinking if he should level up to a road bike or a tri bike. Should he make the investment? Or is his MTB good enough for the meantime? Read on and see what our SBR.ph Online Coach, Coach Ani de Leon-Brown has to say.
Coach, I wanted to try triathlon, actually I swim, I bike and I run, but no experience yet in triathlon. I did aquathlon my first was the Ateneo Aquathlon. I had a bike, MTB setup. Do I need to buy a tri-bike/road bike, or can I use my MTB for the meantime, I will just change to slick tires and rigit fork. Is there any rule in the triathlon that the athlete can only use road/tri-bike?
