Well, our main race series in Georgia has adopted the stage race format which means winning the TT is paramount to winning the GC. I just got my bonus check in and I'm looking to buy a dedicated TT bike.
My budget is about $5k including wheelset. I have a few questions though.
-My current FTP is only about 320-330, should I be even worrying about getting the best of the best stuff right now? I haven't really trained the 2x20 stuff, so I'm hoping I can get it into the 400s with LOTS more training. I can put out a lot more power in my normal road setup than when I put clipons on and move the seat up and forward.
-Is there some great frame/bike bargain I'm overlooking? I will need at least a size 60cm, but prefer larger.
I'm currently figuring on getting one of the Cervelos, probably either a P2SL or P2C with Zipp 999's or a P3 and just using my Carbones for now. Also been looking at the Blue T14(if it's big enough), Specialized S-Works Transition, Trek Equinox, Q'Roo & maybe the Giant...It's all a little overwhelming and for $5000, I want to make sure I get the right stuff(seems like I can't go wrong with a P3).
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
