Fantastic discussion everyone. I think I got my head turned by all the lovely looking Planet X carbon.
Thinking now the Ribble alloy frame might be more in my league.
As most of you have said it's more about the 'engine'.
I have tried aero bars on my road bike and never really got that comfortable. I'm guessing that's why the geometry of TT bikes is different.
Cheers MC. I've spoken to PlanetX and they won't move on the spec. 82mm rims front and back probably too much for me to handle. The wind never drops below 15mph in these parts! I'll wait and see if I can stretch to the Exocet 2 with SRAM.
