Fairly new rider. Looking for good/comfortable/solid bike. Only planning for just 2 Triathlons. Bucket List.

Don't get a tri bike, in that case. They're useless outside of triathlon/time trials. Buy a road bike (or something similar) - you can at least use that for recreation and transportation if you end up liking cycling.

Everyone has their own brands, but most importantly you want something that fits your body's geometry. Specialized/Cannondale/Trek all make good, affordable entry level bikes. Stay away from carbon fiber - a good aluminum bike should be fine.

Our partner shops will be happy to help you find something new, or you can find something on Craigslist.
