Transition Box

Bonjour all,

Got my first Tri next weekend and need a transition box. I have looked on the net and all my searches have brought up the wrong types of boxes. Anyone know a good cheap one online?

    I just use a big plastic box I bought for about £3 from Asda....

    similar to this one on ebay....


    obviously this is a set of 4.

    Its fine for what you need it for. you dont need any specific box any box will do

    I wasn't looking for a specific box as such, just a big plastic box and wanted a cheap one online.... was hoping someone could point one out. thanks

    Bon matin,

    Firstly if you purchase anything with the word Triathlon in front of it you can add TAT (triathlon added tax) roughly this equates to about 200% increase in mark up. With that in mind something as cheap as a plastic container with a lid would cost (if you were to go to Ikea) between £3-£8 MAX. However if you were to buy the very same box from Wiggle, Sigma, TFN then expect to pay about £30.

    I got mine from Ikea ages ago cant recall how much it was but its plenty big enough comes with a lid and it was inexpensive.

    a bientot................

    Have a look at any big supermarket, cheap shops ie wilkinsons, home bargains, poundland etc...... failing that staples, makro etc should have some

    Then put triathlon stickers on to increase its value.
