Looking for an upgrade to my 30+ year old road bike.  I train alone and would like to find a used tribike for under $1000 preferrably closer to $500.  I'm 5'9" and am looking for something in a medium or a 54. PM me if you are looking to sell and upgrade.  Thanks

Hey man... glad to see you are looking to upgrade. Your price point is going to be difficult to find a decent tri bike, but I do have some options for you if your price point can increase to $2k or less. In fact, I have a couple other options at the 56cm size that we could discuss too. Can you ride a 56cm? I am 5'11 and have always ridden a 54cm. I tried a Felt DA1 in the 56 and feel so much better!

 

Let me know what you think. Feel free to email me directly and brian.richards44@gmail.com

 

thanks.

Agree with SYR44 re: pricing. I have something close though, 2008 Specialized Transition Comp in L(56). Shoot me your email if you want some pics - pricing would be $1000-1200 depending on where you live, shipping, etc.

Try looking for an older Quintana roo. My dh has a late 90s edition tequilo and it's about half if not less the weight of my 3 year old felt road bike. They are quality even, from back them and would be a nice upgrade. I'm a second year newbie too and am looking for my own QR . Try looking locally on Craigslist.

I was in your shoes and your size. I got a carbon 105 bike like new condition (planet x stealth) for around 800.
