  • Cyman Triathlon: Discount Tri Supply’s Race Report

    Kyer talked us all into racing Cyman Triathlon 2013As Kyer was warming up to the idea of doing his first tri, he made it clear that he wasn’t going to do it alone.

    Katherine started this, so she knew she had to do it. She offered to swim and talked BIll “Guru of Shoe” Lorenz into running. His girlfriend and Gaggle of Girls founder, Saraleigh, said she wanted to bike and joined the relay.

    David, like Kyer, had never done a triathlon, but was one of the first to jump on board the idea. Bret had done sprint and Olympic triathlons in the past, and even though it had been a few years, he thought this seemed like a good opportunity. Patrick, as our former pro triathlete, was another who sort of “had to,” and we swept him up in our enthusiasm.

    Here are our Cyman Triathlon race reports.

  • Saucony Cortana 3 Review

    by Bill “Guru of Shoe” Lorenz

    Saucony CortanaSo I have a dilemma. In the shoe lab here at Kyle’s Bikes we are selling almost as many of one model of shoe (both men’s and women’s) as every other model of shoe we carry combined.

    How can one shoe be so dominant? How can so many people like this one model? Should we be concerned if the upgrade of this one model (due in January) doesn’t live up to the reputation of the current model? What to do, what to do?

  • What DiscountTriSupply.com Is All About

    Welcome to the official DiscountTriSupply.com blog!  This has been in the works for some time now and I am pleased to finally be putting up the first post. My name is Patrick Davis and I have been on the DiscountTriSupply.com staff for 3 years.  I have raced triathlon as an age grouper, elite amateur and in the pro field.  I love everything about the sport and find all of the gear involved fascinating.  This blog will be our shops outlet to purge information about races, products, training, eating etc.  Here is a little about us.

    DiscountTriSupply.com was launched in late 2010 in the back of our local bike shop.  Growing out of a corn field on the southwest side of Ankeny, Iowa the shop has seen great success.  Over the last two years the e-commerce side has grown a few times.  Today it is a completely separate entity from the shop with 6 full time employees and a few part timers.  That may still seem small but we can pack a mean punch with our efficiency and customer support. The same people who receive your order will pick and ship it.  If there is an issue with any order a personal email gets sent out as quickly as possible.  We are here for you!

    DiscountTriSupply.com is a business based on strong customer service beliefs.  Each customer is treated with world class respect no matter how big or small the order is.  There are no machines packing your order and we take pride in that.  Keeping things small and intimate is our insurance that each customer is treated right.  When the phone is answered there is a good chance you will be talking directly to the founder, Kyer Robinson.  If it is not him the rest of the small but very knowledgeable staff will be able to answer your question.

    This blog is meant to be full of information to benefit our readers.  Many different authors will be represented here.  We feel that knowledge and experience come from everywhere and welcome the input from out local experts.  Some are professional athletes, some have been in the bike industry for decades and others may be here because they have something funny to talk about.

    To close I would just like to say welcome to the blog! A lot of very informative and exciting posts are in the works and can't wait to share them with you. If you find any of this interesting make sure to come back for more and also tell your friends!

    Sincerely,

    Patrick Davis
