Just joined forum. Need help!

Hello guys, I just joined the forum today. Very eager to learn as much as poosible. I need some help... I'm new to sprint triathlons (just completed my 4th race), and am looking to take a step forward. I currently ride a Giant OCR2 entry level road bike with clip on aero bars. I love to ride, but just can't keep up with the local Miami riders. I'm usually very succesful in the swim and run, but can't hang on the bike. I'm looking to upgrade to a triathlon bike. I have a budget, and I'm between a 2008 Cervelo P2 SL Dura Ace, and a 2009 Cervelo P1 Ultegra. Both bikes are on sale for $1,600. I would really appreciate any suggestions. I graciously welcome any advise. Thanks guys!

Ride them both and take the one that feels best under you. A better bike will gain you a few seconds, but a proper fitting and positioning on the bike will gain you much more. Good luck.
