Roadie or Tri?
Here is question I am agonizing over as the weather gets cold and I look forward to the upcomming triathlon and road biking season:
Should my next bike be a tri-specific bike, or should I go roadie?
Now let's give you some background. I participate in 5-6 sprint and olympic distance tri's each year as well as doing long training rides on non-event weekends. I am currently hauling myself around on a converted cyclocross bike that is a tad heavier than most decent roadies.
I have a hard time committing to either type, with the functionality of the tri having a strong foothold in my head, and the overall versatility of the road bike.
So I put it you you, esteemed readers and pseudo-experts. Wisen me if you would with your opinions, feelings, and facts.
