Here are two you probably haven't seen before. Scott Waimea and Nashbar Aero Sprint

I don't do triathlons because, after many years of mega running miles, my knees encouraged me to find other aerobic exercise. However, for long highway rides and closed courses, I much prefer aero positioning and tri and TT bikes to traditional road bikes.

Here are a couple of examples:

My 1996 Scott Waimea. I picked up the frame and wheels, and built out the drive train. Almost vintage in the tri world, but it has the basic characteristics of a dedicated tri bike.



Here is my Nashbar Aero Sprint. If nothing else, this bike is very interesting. I presently have it set up with a single 49t chainring. It is much easier to ride than the usual rap you hear about funny bikes. I like to use it for short hauling ass training runs (10-20 miles) around town. I have been told that funny bikes are sometimes seen on tri course.

Brand new CXII. It's about 5 hours old. So far so good.

I wish the 2000-2005 treks had just a toush steeper geometry. They are so amazing looking. I'm positive they're fast. God they're cool bikes.

Bryan - how do you like that Griffen? I'm looking at building one - and just curious?

Thanks!

Finally got mine done, but with so many road races planned and a baby due, not sure how much use it's going to get as a tri bike. And yes, my saddle is now level.

Kind of a funky angle, but you get the idea.

Cervelo Dual Tri Build 15.5 lbs

This set up is for training but for racing I am using a RENN 575 disc, HED JET 90 rear and HED JET 60 front. I just switch out the rear wheel depending on the races I am doing.

What kind of gearing are you going to spin?

43x14 (80.7 gear inches). That's 24mph at 100 rpm. It's all for ****s and giggles, this is definitely not an "A" race, but since the race is right here in town and it's totally flat, I thought it would be fun to go fixed on a 23-year old steelie.

Not only that, it's accurate from what I've seen on other forums. The Easton fork and bars, the bonty brake levers, it's a really smart spec.

I'm a big fan of BCDs bikes.

As pictured it was just a shade under 15.5 lbs. I am in the process of changing a few things. I have since gone to a heavier wheelset as the training wheels on this set up are now on my single speed road bike. I will be tuning the Dura-Ace front and rear derailleurs soon and have since switched over to Zero Gravity Ti brakes and sold the SS brakes.

I think the overall weight will go up a bit but not much and it should still be under 16 lbs in training form and under 17 lbs with the disc and Jet 60 front.
