I think your husband told you that you are required to have a tri bike so that that's what you get him!
I've done a bunch of sprint tri's on my roadbike, with added aerobars so you can get into the "tri" position more. quote>
I like that idea.
Im sure like you guys are all saying, the bike shop can help with making the best choices.
Joe_h thank you for the websites, I will pass all of this too him!

My husband started doing tris just this past April. He had originally planned to ride a dirt bike for the tri, but was told and found out for himself that road bikes don't roll as well on pavement. He actually found a local bike store that had a handful of bikes for rent. The store owner is a triathlete and understands that newbie triathletes might not want to purchase a bike until they know they're going to stick with the sport. I think he was charging $50/month for the bike. The bike my husband rented was a road bike.
