Hi, I am doing a triathlon and want to get a road bike - this bike looks good but I'm not sure that the geometry is right as it seems to be geared towards the commuter - can anyone give me their advice and thoughts. Thanks Hadley

    Well here's the geometry

    So its not a triathlon bike thats for sure, its more a relaxed sportive bike, but having said that, it would get you round.
    Depends what your budget is and how serious you are taking the triathlon? its like everything else in life its all relative.

    Dedicated tri bikes are more expensive (understatement :shock: ) and also are pretty single purpose - you can't really use one for a gentle Sunday afternoon ride or for going to the shops.

    A good road bike will get you into the sport and unless you're already pretty fit and fast on a bike, then you may not get a lot of benefit from buying a dedicated tri bike.
