Show your "old" tri-bike.

They're about 30 years old now. Mostly conversions back then, with the Scott bars, and such.
Do you have a picture of what you used in a triathlon?
I started on one of these, then "reverted" back to a regular road setup.

Well since I'm not an old man like you Rob, I didn't get start racing triathlons until 2009. This was my rig.

Wild. Hard to believe Trek is on it's 4th or 5th gen tri-bike, as is Quintana, I believe.

Centurion Turbo. Sorry, not a good picture. The lady I got it from said she did Kona twice on it--- back in the 80's of course.

As "classic" a tri-bike as you can get. Custom setup, high-end bike, and not very aero, in bike or position, but probably one with which you could just pretty much ride and rest at the same time.

I have never done a triathlon, but the Club Fuji was marketed as a triathlon bike. Mine is a 1989 model, found a few years ago at a garage sale.

99% of the bikes in triathlons I went to in the 80's were road bikes.

This is a late 90's model, which was raced on "old" tricolor stuff, then upgraded when I got it. Not fast. Actually looks a lot better than it rode.
