Thanks for the replies guys. I was thinking the same thing. I might even just keep the road bike as going up edgewood road > Canada Road > Woodside > Portola road > sometimes old la honda; is my typical route.
I am going to sign up for a triathlon, not sure which yet, swimming will be a breeze for me, the biking and running will be harder. I eventually want to work my way to a half Ironman, and full Ironman.
What kind of tri bike would you recommend? I have around 3k to spend. Also, what are the major differences with the tri bike, will I notice it immediately as I'm riding it?
