Converting a TT frame to general road racing use?
I'm starting to get in the market for a new road bike and I was curious if anyone has taken a tt frame like a P2 or Felt B12, pushed the seat back, added drop bars and raced on it. I like spending time in the wind/breaks (attacking is fun), and figured that if I could even save 5-10 watts with an aero frame it might be worth it. But, I don't want to sacrifice too much in the handling and stiffness. An added benefit would be that I could easily change the bike over to pure tt use.
Any experience with this idea/thoughts?
