I'm more of a road bike, well, more of a fixed gear person. But a young lady I know asked me about opinions on Tri specific bikes. And I don't know JACK about them... I have a cannondale road frame, but AL is pretty stiff for someone of her weight (IMHO)... She already has a Giant road bike (older model, very low end), so she's looking to upgrade. The limiter, she wants to keep it under 1300. She's small size too.
Can any of the help folks here let me know what they ride, what they like don't and what they'd do different? Thanks in advance!
