I got out of triathlons a few years ago, and sold everything I owned. I'm ready to get back into it now, so I figured I would turn to the forums for help in acquiring all the necessities. I'm on a pretty tight budget this time around, so please keep that in mind. It might be close to impossible, but I'm hoping to only spend around $500-700 on the bike, and hopefully under $1000 for everything. I'm 5'9", 185 pounds at the moment, so I'm thinking I'll probably need a 54cm bike and large for apparel.

I'm looking for the following:

1) Road bike - preferably 54cm, but can make a 52 or 56 work for the right price. Not interested in tri bikes at this time.
2) Wetsuit - previously had an Xterra and really liked it, but I'm open to pretty much anything
3) Helmet - I've got a pretty large melon, so I'll need a large
4) Shoes - I wear a 9.5-10, or 43-44, and prefer the 3-bolt pattern
5) Jersey - again, I'm 5'9", 185 lbs at the moment, so large should be good - sleeveless, short-sleeve, or tri top
6) Shorts - large should be a good fit - I wouldn't mind having a good pair of cycling shorts as well as some good tri shorts
7) Other accessories - cleats, clip-on aero bars, hand pump, etc

Feel free to let me know what you've got and how much you're asking to ship to 83835. Thanks.
