tri bike or road bike??
I am in the process of retiring from middle distance track and field, (GB International level) and am going to take up triathlon; sprint and maybe Olympic distance. I need to buy a bike and am trying to decide between a road bike with tri bars attached or a specific tri bike (which as far as I can see is a time trial bike in the pure bike world). What are the pros and cons of each? Given that (it appears...?) most triathlons allow drafting i would assume that a road bike might be OK however tri bikes seem to be all the rage...? Any comments gratefully received!!!
