The Kestral Talon is a great value at $1299, but as noted, you will benefit greatly from aero wheels.

See if Eddy's will offer some sponsorship. They're probably the only bike shop in the area that's big enough to do something like that. If you could get a discount on a bike, wheels and fit put together by someone who knows what they're doing, you could eliminate guesswork on size, wheels etc.

Other shops may know more (like Cycleworks) or are nicer guys (Blimp City) but may be too small to be in the position to offer much.

In any event, get your bike as soon as you can, and ride as much as reasonably possible before your event. TT position, and a proper TT bike will take some time to get used to.

Congrats and best of luck!
