WTB - "Budget" road or TT bike

Recommended Posts

I've got about $1000 - $1500 spare at the moment and thinking of "upgrading" my bike.

 

Currently have an old steel frame town bike with old 9spd 105 and a 12 yr old OCR 3 with a mix of 8spd sora/tiagra, pro lite como wheels and a quill stem adapter. Looking to get back into some half distance races in the next 12 months and not sure if I should get another road bike or try and source a Tri bike. Can swap the groupsets over on my current frames to have a 9 spd training bike and buy a TT bike or pick up a roadie for the money I have.

 

Does anybody have anything they are thinking of offloading in the near future. Thought I would ask here as well as look at the usual ebay/bike exchange and online stores. I appreciate the budget doesn't allow for anything too flash.

 

Ride about a 56cm road bike, 180cm tall, 95 kg. Don't do group rides or anything like that due to location just ride for fitness and training at the moment. Live in north west NSW.

 

Cheers

 

Shane

Check argons website they are weird sizes.

 

 

Checked the site, the 112 is the same sizes as my krypton. My krypton roadie is a medium.
