I'm signed up to do the London Triathlon this year.
I cycle ~28 miles daily, on a hybrid bike which is on it's last legs and am aware that I need a roadworthy specimen for training and the event itself, so I need new one soon.
Thing is, I have panniers for transporting all my stuff to and from work (a backpack isn't enough!) and the bike I purchase needs to remain suitable for both commuting and the event itself.
I'm a bit lost as to what the best choice is. Should I go for another hybrid (and are they suitable for a Tri?) or a road bike? Having looked in several shops and websites I've come across cyclocross and touring bikes, and am getting progressively more confused.
So I thought I'd come on here and ask the experts.
I've only got about £600 to spend but would like to make a good choice that will suit the Tri......
All advice most gratefully recieved
