Someone else in this thread mentioned another Ironman listed only a couple of hours away from me. Last night I emailed and asked for pictures. I haven't heard back.

If I come across any of the bikes listed on the website linked above, I'll jump on them, even if it's not in the best condition--who needs to park in the garage, anyway?

I agree that I just need to put time into priorities and the bike needs to be a priority for the race. I am not schlepping my current rider up 3200' of elevation over 56 miles.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Good on you!
