It sounds like a road bike would be the way to go. You can't do any tri effectively on a hybrid, so scratch that. You could experiment with a tri on a road bike with aero bars.
I would consider a used road bike. You could 'tri' a little of everything, and figure out how serious you are. Then, if you want a serious tri bike, or something else, you won't get crushed on resale.
Don't get caught thinking that spending up front makes you more committed. That's why half the garages in America have NOS Bowflexes in them. Get some miles before you make that commitment.
