Review

I did a search on Review and couldn't find a bike review thread, so if its out there sorry.

I'm in the market for a dedicated tri bike, so that I don't have to worry about swaping out the aero bars on my road bike.

The bikes I'm looking at are (1800 and under)

Cervelo Dual 10
Cervelo Dual
Fuji Alhoa 1
Specialized Transistion Comp
Trek Equniox 7

Out of those, I've heard Cervelo is most popular, but would have to be a custom order (as well as fuji) as LBS normally doesnt stock em.

So what is everyones experince with said bikes? I know it comes down to what feels best to me (just like a roadie) but I just like to know what people think of each bike as far as price goes, how much of that price is the name and how much is actully the bike for example.

Why no Quintana Roo? There were screaming deals on the Kilo for a while. I bought a 2003 for $795 NEW from www.preownedbikes.com and LOVE it.

There are (2) 51cm Kilos posted as of today:
