    The green on that GEOX Team bike doesn't really show well. The photo doesn't do it justice.

    Excited on how that will turn out.

    With that price I would have egged you to get the CAAD10, but that's just me :)

    Fit changes should be done gradually, allowing your body to get used to the new position.

    Welcome to the forums!

    Getting fit on a road bike requires more than just height. Tri/TT bike more so. Torso length, upper/lower arm length, and flexibility figure into your Tri/TT bike fit.
