In the tech world it's common for people to share what they "use" for work. It can be software, hardware, camera/audio gear, etc. I figured I'd do the same for my triathlon life since I'm always curious about other people's set ups.
This list is not exhaustive and I hope to add to it periodically. It's just a glimpse into the stuff I use
I hate training software in general. I mean, its helpful to an extent, but it's all overwhelming. Even having a background in software I can feel like I'm dealing with a labyrinth of apps and APIs to get a good understanding of where I am. Regardless, here's what I'm using

I love this old bike. I'm not entirely sure how many miles I've got on it but I think it's still in decent shape considering the age
2009 Fuji Roubaix (Road)
My first real road bike. It's pretty sturdy but isn't really made for intense cycling. I just love it's size and that I can toss it around
Not a real bike but the Peloton spin classes really changed my perspective on cycling during Covid. I needed a convenient way to workout at home and the leaderboard and Matt Wilpers was everything I needed.
