I have been doing some time trials and TT's on my road bike and I am ready to get a designated bike for the sport. I am trying to decide between:
2010 Cervelo P4
2011 Felt B2 Pro
Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?
Get fit first. For tri/TT bikes, fit matters way more than on road bikes. The P4 is very long and low. No use riding it if you've got a ton of spacers and an upturned stem. Cannondale on the other hand are shorter and taller. Felts are long and low too, though less so than the P4 (I believe). Pick the frame that matches your proportions and how aggressive a position you're able to hold. Slowtwitch has a database of all the tri bikes and their stack and reach for reference.

Both are good bikes. Ride both and decide which fits better.
Or ride the bike in your avatar and be most popular person at the race!
They all fit different. The Trek speed concept has a lot of room for sizing...like the cannondale.... and its extremely fast.
