    I stick to the trainer. You can get decent used ones for $100-200. DVDs help pass the time so do tv shows... But boring. I do mix it up with spinning classes as much as possible too. IMHO I don't...

    Road shoes for off-road tri?

    I am thinking about racing an off-road triathlon in my road shoes.
