Does anyone know of a triathlon store in Iowa (Iowa city area preferably)? Otherwise Sheels is the only place I know that sells tri tops.

Thanks guys, I'll have to check them out when I'm in the area! I want to try on tri tops to see my sizing and eventually purchase one.

Totally understand you wanting to try stuff on, but I ordered my tri top and bottom directly from 2XU and the sizing was spot on.... They offer 100% return except for shipping so it's at least worth looking at. If you sign up for their newsletter you get 10% off I think.

Amazon will allow you to return things too for sizing issues.  I had to return a tri suit twice.  Once for size, then the second time due to damage.  The third time was the charm.

The Action Accents team store on Douglas in Des Moines used to carry a fairly large selection of triathlon attire, but I think now they sort of gotten out of that. I will tell you that my BEST deals have always been found at race expos. While at the Hy-Vee expo this past weekend, I picked up a pair of tri shorts ($40 and reg. $73), three TYR swim bras ($10 each and normally $36) and a cool looking women's cycling jersey ($20)!! I was so excited. That is also where I happened to buy my favorite Orca one-piece tri suit last year ($60 and normally $140). I know there aren't a lot of races with big expos coming up, but keep that in mind for the future. I have to say Amazon, as well. I buy a lot of stuff there. Looked at the bike shops here (Bike World and Scheel's both carry quite a bit of triathlon attire in Des Moines) but found that they were about 30% higher than Amazon in general. I also order a lot from the Pearl Izumi web site. They have a nice clearance section. Good luck!
