If your goal is to set a new triathlon personal best, consider purchasing a time-trial bike. These midrange models mix value and performance, and are all but guaranteed to improve your bike split.
They offer aerodynamic carbon-fibre frames, reliable components and durable wheels that will stand up to high-mileage training, although you may want to upgrade to lighter wheels for race day.

Once you've chosen your speedy steed, you need to fine-tune its setup to work with your body so you can  achieve the most aerodynamic position possible. Ask your bike shop for advice or consider a professional bike-fit outfit such as Cyclefit or Retül.
