    So I’m in Hawaii at the 70.3 and no wetsuits are allowed. I was planning on swimming in my trisuit but they have a changing tent. The rules say no changing at the bike racks. So, what are the changing into? Am I not supposed to swim in tri suit? Will that be too much drag? Should I swim in Jammers and change? Will the salt water be a problem in my suit if I go from ocean to bike? Why is everyone changing? Need to make a decision by tomorrow. Any advice would be great. I’m balancing speed of transition with comfort and swim speed.

    Thanks!

    Nevermind, problem solved. Apparently you don’t want to swim in your tri suit because of drag. So they make a speed suit that you wear over your tri suit, like a wet suit, and peel it off when you get out. Just got one at the expo. I’ll let you know how it works out. Lol
