Trust me, there are plenty of people on all sorts of bicycles that leave me in the dust, wobble or no. I really don't worry about it too much. I do gotta admit, alot of the tri chicks are hot!
I still consider myself a roadie who's been forced into running and swimming to get some good TT'ing in.

Point is that "triathlete" is just as sweeping a generalization as any other, and exceptions to the stereotype can be easily found.
