I thought money was an issue, hence downsizing from 2 to 1 bike

Not totally.  It's not like we needed it to buy food. Just cashing in on money that was gathering dust in the corner.

Then again, if money was a big issue you wouldn't sell something you already have that is serving you well, lose money, then spend more on a new bike to save one squillionth of a poofteenth of a second in an OD race when only racing age group 

One squillionth of a poofteenth of a second could make all the difference.  And what's this "only racing in age group" rubbish? In my next life I'm going to be a pro. I need to practice now!

I've been following this thread as I'm in the market for 2 bikes (roadie and a tri-bike) and have a completely blank slate and no clue. Just wondering why the Giant / Liv hate?

Because what else would they be able to put shit on me about? !

Good point. 

Get a no name brand then get them to sponsor you!

Bah, brand schmand, ride whatever puts a smile on your face. I've had my Bianchi for two years now and only just gelling with it and that's after changing a stem, bars, headset, fitting a Praxis Campag adaptor trying a different brand of crank bearings. I like it a lot more now.

My Ti bike is 13yrs old and I loved it from day one, it's in its third group set and numerous bits n pieces.

P3 is a work in progress.

bikes are like relationships, some are love at first sight, some take work for a long term thing to happen and some end in divorce. B)

Thanks for posting Roger. I've spent the last day doing some research (aka Google). Interesting stuff. 

Any shorties out there ride 650s?

I rode a P5 @ Ironman Texas. No bike fit just adjusted the seat height by feel & loved it. 

After using the straight TT bars for years.  No matter what bike I get next I'm going back to ski pole TT bars.

I borrowed my mates, he lives in the Woodlands Texas.  It's been nice traveling with out a bike.  If I do Chattanooga I'll use his other P5.  He will just tri bike transport it to thr race fo me.
