Hi! I'm a rather petite (4'10.5") 20-yr-old woman who is looking for a good, lightweight racing bike. I have been a runner for the last seven years - competing for both high school and college track teams. I've done countless half marathons and two marathons. My buddy does triathlons and wants me to get into it, too. So I'm up for the challenge and excitement of this new event! I've been running (of course) and began swimming in preparation for my first olympic tri this summer. I have also done weight lifting, taken spin classes at my gym, and have been riding my mountain bike.
Needless to say, I'm in the market for a small racing bike... but don't want one that is too expensive in case I go back to just running. Any ideas? Sizing tips? I saw this one on craigslist, what do you think? http://newyork.craigslist.org/stn/bik/611397112.html
Any helpful tips for this new wannabe triathlete? =)
