TT Bikes

I am looking to change my TT bike and am unsure what to purchase.  I currently have a QR Seduza but am looking to upgrade.  I have been looking at 3 - Dassi, Beacon or Argon?  does anyone have any suggestions? I am confused and spending £3K is not easy.


  • nmullin what type of triathlons do you like? Upto Olympic distance? so you can get away with a more aerodynamic less comfortable bike! - Or are you a 70.3 and Ironman triathlete, where you could be spending, 6,7,8 hours in the saddle? if so, a degree of comfort will be necessary   The Argon 18 range are good - the new E117 is a great all rounder - a good enough aero position to benefit you on the shorter events, but a slight degree of comfort built in so you can go marathon running after the ride!!

    Maybe keep and eye on the pricing of the new canyon speedmax when the pricing comes out?

  • Have a bike fit first. The data from that will allow you to choose a bike that will fit you naturally rather than adding spacers etc. Some bikes suit longer legs and shorter upper bodies and vicer verser

    Les is spot on... if you are looking to blow that sort of money then i think the best thing is to get to a bike shop, find out what suits your body shape, flexibility, targets etc. there are loads of great bikes out there for that sort of money. 

  • I agree regarding a bike fit too... I went and had a Guru fit to do exactly that. Well worth the money. Some places will even discount the cost of the fit against a bike purchase (TriUK and thetriathlonshop being 2 that I know do)

    I was quite surprised ultimately with what I came out with.... I had my eye on Argon18 and Cannondale bikes and neither would fit me without doing silly things with stems and spacers.

    I'm glad i spent the time and money making sure I didn't spend a £3k mistake!!!
