Just a note, a guy I know won a triathlon with an 80ís chromoly bike about 12 years ago against people who had hi-tech carbon and alu bikes... yeah he was an amateur and he still won, because he trained harder than anyone else. The true weight difference on a modern tri bike is the position (due to bike geometry) and the weight, and some people say you can adapt both of those parameters on oldschool steel bikes (to a certain extent) that would bring you close enough especially if youíre on a budget.
