I'm a MTB guy who rides a Trance and I have recently been talked into tackling some triathlons so I'm reaching out to someone who knows more about it than I do. I've put myself on a budget because I'm just getting into road biking for the tri's. I'm looking for something at the starter level at around $500-$600. I know this won't get me much but I'm just looking for something to get me around that can be converted to an everyday commuter in about a year and a half when I start college (again). I welcome all advice but if your advice is to spend more then you are wasting your time, I'm not going to.
