Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

road bike for a tri-geek?

Anybody have any recommendations for a higher-end road bike for a tri guy? I'm looking for a road bike that I can put a ton of miles on as I move up from short/middle distance tri's to Iron distance. I'm currently riding a Cervelo p1 and commuting on an old Bianchi Veloce.

I'm curious if anybody has had success on standard road bike geometry versus the newer (for me) 'performance' geometry like the Roubaix/Synapse etc which I'm intrigued about.

My old bones don't do well on the Cervelo if I do more than 100 miles a week.

Thanks (and please forgive a tri-geek for posting here)
