First TT bike

Seeking opinions/advice on selecting a first TT bike. I've done the clip-on-bar thing in the past and would like to go with a dedicated bike. I used the search function and read everything I could find here. Has anyone ridden or owned a Specialized Transition? Opinions?

Thanks

Transition? That name doesn't sound fast at all.

Wouldn't a Rivendell TT bike be like a Little Rascals Soapbox Racer?

Honestly if I had the money I would have gone with this.



I would not have the Ambrosios though.
