    This and the Fuji Transonic. I have both with drop bars and add a clip-on aero bar when I want to get TTish. Yeah, you still have the drop bar instead of the more aero TT base bar but that's not so big a deal. There's plenty of both on the used market at great prices.

    He's referring to the fact the the posts you are responding to were 5+ years old and most of the people involved in the conversation aren't even around any more.

    That said, i like your posts. it's a cool project. Not something I'd personally be interested in, but it may have value for someone else down the road.

    Thanks for posting

    Leon, Im loving youre bikes! They are quite awesome!
    For the sake of looks, maybe not comfort, have you considered changing the angle just slightly on the drop bars on you Specialized so the bar runs more parallel with the top tube? And the for comforts and reach, move you brake leavers slightly up?

    Tri bikes are stiff & are not be best handling bikes. I would just get a tri bike and keep your other bike for road.

    This may work for young racers, but not too many people can live with those saddle to bar drop distances. A tri bike head tube is going to be at least an inch or two lower than what most riders would find comfortable.

    Having said that, I did ride a Kestrel RT700 for a while with a (longish) flipped stem, and it worked just fine, but it sure didn't look so nice that way.

    I also converted a old Mongoose TT aluminum to road. Re branded and put Veloce and Kinlin 35's. Fast but not fun for endurance. I use it for coffee shop rides and weekday training rides. I also like to look at it as it is my first rebuild. I also changed the fork to carbon and it made a big difference.Convert TRI bike into ROAD bike??-rx.jpgConvert TRI bike into ROAD bike??-cinelli.jpg

    This looks great I am considering it too as I am really not doing much in way of time trials and would like an aero road bike. This seems like a possible way to do it.
