Hello everyone! With itchy feet after my first marathon (and with much extra energy to spare while working to improve my times for the next one), I'm turning my eye to Triathlons. First task: look for a bike!
As my workplace offers the Cycle2Work scheme, it makes sense to go new. Having done a little research, the Carrera TDF or Virtuoso look right for the price, but is it also worth looking at lower-end Specialized models (around the £300-400 mark)?
I was thinking of getting a road bike and switching to cyclocross tyres for everyday use (i.e. cycling to work on a 7-8mi gravel path along the canal), then racing in the road tyres - is this adviseable? Or should I really be looking at hybrid bikes?
