Need help with bike selection
Hello, I'm new to the sport of triathlon. I've only completed one as of today, but I enjoy it and am hooked. I borrowed a bike to compete and am looking to purchase a new bike this fall or next spring. I don't know much about bikes at this point, so I'm looking for any advice on selection. I'm 6'2" and weigh about 200 pounds. My budget is somewhere between $2,000-$2,500 since I want a bike that I can use for quite some time, and I don't mind spending money up front in order to avoid needing to upgrade as my skill and fitness level increases. I don't necessarily want a triathlon specific bike. I think a road bike that can double as a tri bike would be more to my liking. I've done a little research on Scott, Kestrel, and Specialized, but would appreciate any advice you can give me.
