I have an opportunity to possibly pick up a Cervelo P2 frame for very cheap. I don't do triathalons and don't really have any interest in starting. I do however love road riding and a new road bike would be nice. Would the geometry throw me off that much in a road setting?
I don't know what you ride now, but the position on the P2k will be incredibly long and low as a road bike. Once you get your saddle to a normal "road bike" say 3-7cm behind the BB, the top tube is going to be long. Not to mention that Cervelo's are notoriously low head tubed bikes even for tri/tt bikes.
It's not the geometry, it's the handling once you get the geometry adapted to a road position. On top of that it could be ugly(seat slammed back and an upturned stem).
