    comfortable tt frame wanted, i'm 180lbs.

    i'm a roadie for 20 years, absolutely love my ti road rig. have ridden losts of carbon and alluminum and steel frames. thinking of tt bike build over winter love to do it myself. looking for tt frame geometry with steep seat and min fork rake, must be 700 wheels. would like ti, but also would consider both carbon and allum since plan on doing sprint tt events, usually l;ess than 1 hour on bike. ironman or 1/2 ironman is absilutley out of the question.

    recomendations for frames wanted: Fuji Aloha? Trek Equinox? input please.....
    I once ate 11 Lobsters, no kidding. Dean Compact Ti 'Cross with Chorus; Merlin Agilis with D/A 9 speed; Basso SS; Litespeed Obed XTR 9; Cannondale SS MB rigid disc w/studded tires for snowmobile trails.

    ive been doing a lot of looking around for TT frames as well. my budget is really strict and ive narrowed it down to the Aloha or the Leader 735TT. ill probably end up with the Leader because of some of the reviews ive read on here and the price.

    Comfort is pretty subjective. You need to get fit, and even then, I wouldn't say that a true aero posittion is "comfortable". More like bearable.
    FS: Fuji SL1 frameset, 55.5cm toptube, excellent condition.
