RT700 as a TT bike.

Any thoughts of http://www.kestrel-usa.com/bikes/rt700.php this with the aero seatpost in the forward position as a TT bike? The other frames I'm thinking of are used P2SL or P3SL, the pricing would be about the same.

if you're looking for a TT frame, why don't you look for actual TT frames? you'll want a frame with something in the neighborhood of 77+ degrees in seat tube angle.

Well, the p2sl is 78deg in the forward position.

What isn't clear is the RT700 angle in the forward position. If it gains 3deg like the cervelo seat post, it'd be 76 to 77deg.

well this is your choice and i don't know exactly what you'll be using this for, but it seems like you could help yourself decide with a little more knowledge on the subject.
