What’s your view on why there are so few ‘triathlon’ geometry bikes in British triathlon?
Everything I’m reading seems to regard them as a must, yet both (yes, 2, so no ‘wealth’ of experience here) triathlons that I have entered seemed to be mainly road bikes.
Are the steep angled bikes just hype? Do they offer no real benefit?
Is it availability I’ve seen them offered online, but I’ve never seen one at a LBS.
I don’t think it could be the price, I’ve seen some very expensive bikes at these events.
Another example of this is our triathlon magazines, they always seem to review the road geometry frames even when the particular range has a tri-specific model.
I’m just worried that I’m missing something here? Or am I thinking too much about it?
