Tri BIke Choice
Hi all. My first 70.3 is coming up later this year, and I'm now giving a lot of thought to investing in a tri bike for increased comfort over the distance and hopefully a slight time advantage+the possibility of slightly fresher legs off the bike. I'm looking at three main offerings - a Trek Speed Concept in the 7.0 or possibly up to 7.5 range, one of the new Shiv models, or a Scott Plasma. I've read that the Scott bikes tend to be a lot easier to travel with and work on. I'm also drawn by the inbuilt hydration on the Shiv, and by the UCI compliance of the Speed Concept if I get into club TT racing later on (this seems possible). I love my roadie, but even after a few fits and lots of stretching this year it's still killing me about 50-60ks into a solo ride.
Has anyone got any comparative experience of the three, or two of the three? Thanks in advance for any info.
