    "Bike. You'll need one of these to time trial. Regulation 14 relates to bikes. UCI bike rules do not apply to CTT time trials."

    A knar, I mean if a bike is branded as a "Triathlon" bike, it usually means there's something about it that's not UCI legal. i.e. the P5 is TT/Triathlon, the P5x is Triathlon.

    But how many( i.e. the vast majority) are advertised as TT/Tri ...the differences are often incredibly subtle, even down to one having a faring for "storage" while the TT one doesn't.
    Buying a tri bike would only bar you from very few events.

    Personally I'd go for one with Rocky Mountain frame, Tri Max carbon TT chainset with hed tri spoke on front and disc rear.....;):lol:


    Hope they can be flipped to praying mantis position that seems all the trend now.....fuck it if you can't see ahead :eek:;)

    A knarrrr, I'm just telling you why some bikes are advertised as 'Triathlon' bikes and not 'TT' or 'TT/Triathlon' bikes.

    Mavic cosmet wheelset
    Adamo attack saddle

    Edit ... ignore that @Cee Jay , just messaged seller to try test bike and it’s sold . Quest goes on

    Only because you cannit run, tubs...

    Nee point in buying a 2k carbon bike if you have 50 pence legs. More about the engine

    I might buy it just for the wheels! You got it out of the attic?

    Or as a mate once said. No point spending a fortune trying to save a few oz when you're a couple of stone overweight. I still do it though.

    just in the spare bedroom, but nah.
    First step is to think/decide to sell it, just need to get arse in gear and get it downstairs etc ;)
    had plenty of photo's but these seem to be on old laptop and seem to have disappeared.

    I've got a club mate down here who wanted to buy my TT bike off me. He has family connections in South Shields (skunks unfortunately) for collection and it'll be the right size for him.

    Send me the details/photos via email (PM me if you haven't got my address) and I'll forward it to him.

    Tell him to fuck off...;)

    Will do...had a look at it the other day( in one of the bedrooms so at least not been getting damp/dirty in garage)
    It still looks the part, before doing anything I'll take it for a once over from cycleworld as I'm sure the cables could need replacing after 3 years of inaction.
    Looking at it almost made me want to blow tyres up and take it for a final spin...a few years since sat on a really fast bike and blasted it( well at least what I would call a blast :oops:)

    I've messaged him to see if he's keen. I'm off to Mallorca at stupid a'clock in the morning but I'll pass on any messages one way or t'other.
