Athlete Wish List Part 2 (bike)

Good morning, it's time to continue the athlete's wish list with the bike addition. Being a triathlete means needing a lot of gear you can find my swim list here: Athlete Wish List Part 1 (swim) and here a a few things that I have and love or are on my list for biking:

If you're looking for a big ticket gift, a full carbon road bike might be the right choice. A women's specific bike is important for my build (long legs, short torso and narrow shoulders) I love my tt-bike and while I won't be adding a fancy new road bike to the fleet this month maybe one day:

If you are going to spend hours on the bike you might as well be comfortable AND look cute! Betty Designs Cycling Kit

I great addition to my gear this year were proper tri shoes with carbon soles, I love mine from Specialized:

And my FAVORITE thing to eat on the bike (don't judge me) PB snickers!
