Welcome to bikeforums! Multi-speed Time-trial bikes and Road bikes are popular at competitive events. These bike maximize an athlete's performance by keeping the cyclist in a aerodynamic position and offering 18, 20 or 22 gear combinations for a wide speed range.
I would start with a Road bike and install Aero-bars. This is a versatile and fast combination.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
