    Cervelo P3C Corima aero wheels Vittoria clinchers, full Campagnolo Record groupset, Selle Italia saddle, FSA basebars, Profile aero(tri)bars.

    Its great!

    Buy a Cervelo S1 (Soloist team) or S2 (Soloist carbon)

    1. Only bike that can be genuinely be converted between true road and Tri geometry - by flipping the seatpost - so arobars actually work on it

    2. Aero tubing

    3.Excellent quality

    4 you have 2 bikes for the price of 1

    Transitions are excellent:)

    If your thinking of getting one of those you will not be disappointed!!!!!

    I thought about one but opted instead for my Argon 18.... not gona be many of them in transition areas I can tell you that!

    With the Transitions, even the comp is an excellent bike, I had a 2007 comp as my first Tri Bike, although it was made of aluminium then and not the carbon it is now, it was excellent.....

    I ride a Tarmac S-works as my training bike and it is top notch too....You can not go wrong with a specialized in my opinion:)

    It's not the bike it's the rider [;)]

    I was 24th out of 127 on the bike leg at Northwich on Sunday, riding a £600 Trek 1.5, with no modifications at all except for aerobars. There were lots of nice bikes in transition too (yes there were half a dozen or so fat people on mountain bikes as well).

    Not that I'd say no to a Specialized Transition.
