..that sounds suspiciously like something an aussie would say (about anything)
My Giant OCR3 with tri bars, SPD-SL pedals, bottle cage and a good service cost me less than 300 quid. I came 81st at Henley out of 260 odd in my first tri ever. The only things that passed me looked and sounded like they were out of BladeRunner and I overtook a couple of very sexy Boardman Carbon Frame jobs on an unfamiliar course. I'm delighted and reckon I'll keep her for a while yet. It's not about the bike.
