I am in the market for a bike. I would like to start training for triathlons, but I am a poor college student and don't have $1000 to spend. I am looking for something durable, but still inexpensive. I would also like to get a hybrid bike since I might do some offroading. So far, I haven't seen a whole lot out there, but a few choices I saw were these:
Trek 7200/7300 (25")
Diamondback Insight 1 '08 (23")
That's all I could find with the bigger frames. I am around 6'5" and 220lbs. I would also like to spend between $250 and $400. If I do this more often and start to compete, I will be able to spend quite a bit more.
