    New Triathlete, New Bike, plz jump in

    I'm new to the sport and am soo psyched by the training involved !! Anyway Im looking to invest on a Trek Pilot 2.1 road bike (it's within my budget $1500 or so), any thoughts or feedback?

    A little bvackground, Im 5'7" 188 lbs. transitioning from bodybuilding to the sport. Ive come down from 205lbs to what I have now. I look to come down to 180-175(ideally). It just feels too heavy for me to carry and all the triathletes I look at are very lean.

    Im also new to this forum , turned on by my buddies @ coolrunning.com but enjoy what I have been reading.

    So welcome me in and give me what you got!!!!

    Welcome. I'm another body building convert. Don't worry about the weight thing, keep riding you'll have no choice but to lose weight

    That's a nice choice of bike, take a look at what Felt is offering too. I ride the Trek like that but made in 02.
