Dedicated TT'er looking for RR worthy road bike
I'm a Cat 3 that focusses mainly on TT's. I use hard group rides and local club races to hone my form after a couple of months of intervals. This year, due to a hit-and-run, I lost my carbon bling bling road bike. Crushed.
I'm looking at the Kestrel up on bikes direct, and also the Scattante (sp?) on performance bikes. I'm sure this sh@@ gets asked often enough, but am I setting myself up for disappointment? The Kestrel seems so appealing because Ritchey WCS is rock solid; I'm a bit sketched by the Ritchey Protocol wheels though. And Scattante is a brand I know less than nothing about.
Of course, continuous ebay/craigslist scouring is going on. I also found a Ti (my preferred material) at about 2,500 used, a Guru. It seems like a great offer but I haven't seen pics yet.
If anyone else has any suggestions, that'd be great. I fit a 57-60 and would like to get < 17 lbs total bike weight.
