Carbon bike for a newbie?
Hello, newbie here looking to buy my first bike for London triathlon in August. A lot of the buying advice I've seen for newbies is to get a decent entry level bike such as the SCR 2.0 or Spesh Allez but if I stretched a little more I could probably get a carbon bike such as the Focus Cayo 2007 which I've seen for around £750. My question is for a newbie who haven't cycled for over 20 years, will getting a lighter carbon bike really make that much of a difference in terms of speed? Would it be better to improve my cycling ability before upgrading to a better bike? Appreciate any advice from you knowledgable lot.
