HI I am new here and I am pretty sure this has been answered but if not can someone please help me out. I want to start getting into cycling and I have no Idea what bike I should get to train for events such as a triathalon or a century. I have heard of shimano 105 and tiagra, sora etc. but I have no idea what components would be the best for what I would like to do which fast paced long distance rides
.basically my question is what kind of parts, components should I be looking for and I am on a budget of $1,000 and under any help such as a cycling site that sells bike or some advice would be very helpful for now I am going to go use google to do some additional research Thank you.
