i'm preparing for my 1st ever triathlon and was wondering if anyone can suggest a retail store to purchase a bike? I am only about 5'4" and am interested in a women's tri bike. I live in Sioux Falls South Dakota...i'd appreciate ANY help!! Thanks! Meegan
Very exciting! When is your race? Last time I was in Sioux Falls I was in the ER, I landed on the point of my elbow while playing in a soccer tournament.
There appear to be 2 bike stores in Sioux Falls.

Look for something that fits you correctly, that you feel confident on, and that works with your budget. It adds up fast!
Good luck shopping!

Check this out for race day clothing...
There were tons of good deals to be had.
As for bike I would check craigslist vs. buying new. Unless youjust really want to spend money.
I would try to get something around 50cm... but depending you might have a size up or down from there.
Good luck on finding a bike.
