On a tangent!,
This review is from: Ultimate Triathlon: A Complete Training Guide for Long-distance Triathletes (Paperback)
Quoting the book:
"The downside of a TT bike is twofold. The first and move obvious is the cost. Spending £1.5k plus on another bike is a significant investment and one that not everyone will gain large time improvements from. The second limitation is that TT bikes are designed for racing and time trialling. They are not designed for safe group riding or commuting in heavy traffic..."
Not sure what the point was here! Who on earth is going to be buying a tri bike for commuting..? If you're writing a book called "Ultimate Triathalon" then you should be focussing on the scientific sport benefits of buying TT bike (which you did briefly - but detail was lacking), and not placing so much emphasis on the cost; especially when considering that road bikes can be just as expensive as TT bikes?!
