>Cross Training>Is it OK to use a 10-year old rusty mountain bike in a triathlon?
Then does it cause sense of inferiority to swim using other strokes rather than front crawl?
If its a crowded triathlon you will take up more space with almost any other stroke in the water and you will hit more folks with your legs and arms plus you will get hit more. I did it once with the breast stroke and it wasn't a pleasant experience.
Thank all of you very much. I finished JewseyMan Sprint Triathlon with a mountain bike today. I still passed a couple of guy/gal on road or tri bikes. Of course, vindication came during the running leg
one could always add some road bike style tires on that mountain bike for cheap...
which would essentially turn it into a hybrid...
good luck in the future!
