I’m from out of the country and will be visiting the US, what’s the best triathlon shop in city XYZ?

While I can cover the Washington DC ones (and do here), I don’t know too many other tri shops outside of the DC area.  Your best bet is definitely Slowtwitch for this one, the forums are a wealth of information.

One thing to keep in mind, is that if you’re looking for technology gear – you can have it direct shipped to your hotel in the US.  Meaning, you can order it on Amazon or wherever and simply ship it straight to your hotel.  I often do this on business trips where I’ve ordered something I need mid-trip.  Simply fill out the address as such:

John Doe (change to your name)
C/O Sheraton Hotel (change to your hotel, but keep the C/O in front – which means Care Of)
123 Main Street
City, State, Zip

That’s it!  Super easy, it’ll just be waiting for you at the front desk when you arrive.
