Today a co-worker asked me the difference between a road bike & a tri bike.
I explained to him the differences as I understand them and then asked him why he asked. Turns out a guy that runs in his social circle recently bought a $4500 bike and is now talking about selling it and getting a tri bike. Apparently spending this amount of money on a bike tossed this clique into a tizzy. *BTW, all these guys have Harleys and/or boats.
My friend said that his buddy had offered to sell him the bike for $1000. I discussed the things to check (mainly fit) and said a $4500 bike for $1k is probably a killer deal.
He replied that he wasn't sure he really needed a $1,000 bike. He'd be happy with a bike like mine.......
This is my bike that he was referring to
