Entry Level Tri/Road Bike
« on: September 01, 2011, 03:36:11 PM »

Maayung adlaw sa tanan!

Ako usa ka bag-ong sumasalmut ning klase sa paugnat sa kusog.  Mangutana unta ko sa mga experto kung tag pila ang entry level nga road/tri bike.  Bisan kana lang pinaka low end sa mga mainstream nga set-up.  Sa inyu experience, mas maayu ba mag assemble or complete na nga bike ang paliton?  Ok ra ba ang 2nd hand?  Alkansi man gud (perteng alkansiha!) sa bike leg ang MTB bisan mag road tires. Nag hangak na ang nag MTB, ang nag road/tri bike nag taghoy-taghoy lang...hehehe.

Tambagi og tabangi ako.  Kini ang akong suliran.

dko kasulti na mas cheaper ang dans bikeshop compare sa ykk since their both selling different brands. dans bikeshop sells mostly specialized items(frames, built bikes, accesories) while ykk carries many bike brands and accessories. the best to do cguro was to do window shopping and inquiries on these stores para maka compare sa prices and select the one which will fit the budget.

I am referring to road bike as both road and tri bike.

I think its personal preference.

If you want specific then, tri bike.
If you are into road racing, you can easily add/remove aerobars with a road bike.

I have both pero puro mga old school.

If i bike to busay, i use my road bike. Sometimes kung feel nako, mag road bike during training.
During triathlons and trainings, i use my tribike.

I read other forums and the opinions are endless.

Here's mine:

Go road bike first. You can use it for training and race. 

If you intend to go serious a tri-bike may immediately give you the feel of a triathlon but you have to careful handling this type of bike.
There are no break levers at the aerobar and the shifters at the bars are not as quick as the road bike's. I learn it the hard way. 3 months of use and I'm still not confident using tri-bike. 
Aero position can be discomforting especially to the neck and line of sight of the road.
Since tri-bikes are essentially time trial bikes, it is intended for solo speed on flat ground and not for group rides or peloton and even climbing.   
Price: Tri-bikes are relatively expensive than Road Bikes.  Cheapest as far as I know was something like P57,000. There are road bikes that can be bought at P25,000 or may be less.

Used or brand new, i don't think it's an issue, you'll upgrade it anyway... sooner or later. What matter's most is the fit. If the concept of bike fitting is new, google it or better yet visit a bike shop and have your fit taken.  I tried at YKK (disclaimer: wa koy labot sa YKK ha. ;)). Wrong fit and you'll regret it.

But if you can afford, road bike for training, tri-bike for racing. That should settle it.
