Do you have to use one attire for all components of a triathlon or are you allowed to changed at every changeover

If you are a beginner and you feel comfortable, you may change into a comfortable attire. However, do note that there are no changing tents in the transition area for shorter races like the mini, sprint and olympic distances races. Changing tents are only available for longer races such as the half and full ironman distance races. Most seasoned triahletes who are aiming for a faster timing would wear a one piece or two piece trisuit. The elite professional triathletes are bounded by certain rules set by the international federation on the types of attire they have to wear. However, these rules do no apply for age-group triathletes

If I am just starting out in triathlon, how important is it for me to get a triathlon bike

If you're just starting out in triathlon and are unsure if you would be doing this sport for a long time, I would suggest that you use any bike which you are comfortable n happy with. You do not need to purchase or rent a triathlon specific bike or a road bike for the event.
