It came to mind today to start looking into renting a wetsuit for the triathlon in June. I talked to my local Gazelle Sports, and they rent for $30 for the weekend, $60 for the week.
They are also selling their old wetsuits right now for $90.
If I end up doing multiple triathlons, buying a used suit makes good financial sense. I also like the idea of having the suit available anytime to practice with and get used to.
But having never done a tri before, I'm leary about buying swimming equipment in case I don't end up doing many tri's in the future. Swimming is not usually my thing outside of the context of triathlon.
What do you think? Is the $90 used suit a good buy?
