Shopping List for the Off Season


I’m starting to think about the shopping list for the off-season. This is the first cut.

  • Aerobars, new seat and water bottle
    • Bike fitting after aerobar and seat install
  • Floor Pump
  • Triathlon bag
  • Arm Warmers
  • Ride Jacket (thin jacket that with pockets to wear over jersey)
  • New pair of shoes and/or orthotic inserts
  • Tri Shorts and Jersey (not a singlet, I already have TNT’s)
  • Gel bottles to put on the bike
  • Better way to carry salt pills
  • Fuel Belt with space for the goo bottles and salt.
  • Periodic refills
    • Sunscreen (spray, SPF 30+)
    • Body Glide
    • Power bars
    • Hammer gels
    • Gu Brew
    • Salt Pills

Price is going to be an issue (not like you were expecting something cheap, right?) but it can be done  over a longer period of time so it won’t smack me too hard… I hope
