Bigger/new bike or not?

If you go somewhere good, it shouldn't be a case of being fitted to "a" bike... get a position where you're comfortable and then you're can evaluate how to achieve those coordinates on your bike or a new one if you so desire.

John that front end looks particularly low... for a road geometry. that said, the rest of the fit doesn't look too bad. it's possible with a pedestalled tri bar set up that the frame is pretty much ideal as a TT frame for you!


I'd suggest going for a bike fit though.

My personal take is that if you're coming back from injury, the forecast certainty is so low that it's not worth writing that far ahead. Just work hard and keep working hard ad infinitum. Or ad nauseam as is probably more appropriate here.

If your only concern is noise, the Elite Turbo Muin is top of the pile.

Out of interest, if the legacy and lottery places did not exist, would those who talk about wishing they could race in Kona still do so? 

Compare with the Olympics, for example. Certainly the barriers to entry are higher in the Olympics than Kona, but I think that the existence of those barriers is sufficient to stifle the desire of those who just don't want it bad enough.

Personally, I would love to race in Kona. But by qualification only. I would never apply for a lottery or legacy place. And I don't know how far 'down' I'd be willing to accept a roll-down slot. I frame the experience as something I'd earn.

I have a vague recollection this was the same guy. See his post "I did 1/8th of an ironman today woohoo"...
