Any major Clydes on Tri-bikes?
I had a discussion with another forum member I rode with once, about a year ago (BeeTL). He rides a Tri-bike, even though he doesn't do triathlons, because of carpel-tunnel in his arms or something like that. After discussing with him what made it better and researching it a bit, I began to wonder if this might be a good geometry for me for a road bike. I am a major clyde (e.g. 300+ => about 320 pounds).
Most Tri bikes I've looked at online, look very high-end and don't look to be tops in the "sturdy" department we clydes need. Are there sturdy tri bikes? Maybe steel frame ones? I do see some with plenty of spokes in their wheels, but not sure otherwise.
What brands would be sturdier types? I am not wanting to do triathlons either...just thinking it might be a good geometry. Any suggestions for a sturdy one that is not high-end priced? If I get some good suggestions, maybe I can find a local retailer and test ride some.
