What type/make of bike will people be racing on this year? Santa was very good to me, so I will be racing on a QR Lucero with Mavic Cosmic Carbon\'s...a very nice bike and a bit of a change from the £100 Raleigh I started on 7 years ago.

I would have been a Litespeed Vortex but the titanium seems to be faulty and its developed a crack in the Frame - grrrrr!!!

Hopefully its on the way back to the US right now for what seems t be alengthy repair/replacement process (up to 2.5 months!!!)

...so I will be back on the Raleigh until it comes back - unless anyone has a decent stand in to sell me?

Hi all
Anybody out there riding a Scott Plasma? Your thoughts would be great. I ride a Scott S30 road bike, a very solid ride. I haven\'t seen many people in my area on Scott bikes so any feedback would be great!
Cheers!

Have seen a good deal on a 2006 Felt S32 Tri bike.
Does anyone know of any reviews that I can take a look at?

cheers.

I will be on a Planet X TT this season and it makes it alot easier to say that when my wife will also be on a similar machine.

Double the cost but half the pain ;o)

Just got a Trek 1200 to replace my aging steel Dawes (only cost £30 a few years ago and got me started in triathlon but a bit like driving a Morris Minor in a F1 Grand Prix!!). The Trek is a triple (got a few serious hills in my area!) and goes like a train. Thrilled to bits with it.

I saw a Trek TCR in a bike shop here in Beijing (brand new I might add) with Ultegra components, fairly basic aero wheels it must be said - 1200 quid!!

I like it how everyone on the bike is smiling - apart from the girl at the very front sittingon the handlebars

\"No seriously!!! right a little more, go on... on.... OK now HARD LEFT!!!!\"

principia ellipse sx for racing (road race and tri)

and

steel frame single speed (48*18 or 48*16) for training and maybe the odd flat tt / tri if the retro cool cycling thing feels right on the day!

Picked up a month or so ago a Trek equinox 7. Trek kindly upgraded the wheelset to Bontrager aerolite. Very happy so far.

How about Valdora PHX. Got it few months ago and it\'s runs like dream...

Check it on valdoracycles.com

New to the site, but LOVE IT! I just bought a Valdora PHX also and have been extremely happy with it the few times I have had a chance to ride it. Been over 100 degrees F here and races and training has come to a halt. My roadie is a Cannondale Caad 9. Like it a lot as well!!! I use it for most of my races this year.

I had Cannondale R900 before someone smashed it.. :(
You guys lucky there. Here in London it's been raining all summer and we had like two weeks when weather was good. Not hot but didn't rain. I've started growing fins... ;)
Planning to do my 125 mile ride next weekend. Not to test bike but my bottom.

'07 EMC2 Fluide...

Its a really responsive bike but I'm going to have to change the bars to carbon due to the vibration from really poor roads making a couple of previously injured thumbs fairly uncomfortable....

...and Eric's even signed it for me...

Hi all,

Say hypothetically you had around 1200-1400 to spend on a speed machine for your first tiathlon what would you buy?????

Anyone got a le monde??
