comment What's a good setup for an experienced but rusty cyclist training for his first triathlon?
Thanks for the advice here. I decided to go with a straight road bike - a Cannondale CAAD 10 5. It was at the upper end of my budget, but it's a great bike and I'm sure it will suite me well for both my initial tri and general road cycling.

Thanks for all these tips, everyone. @Ken Hiatt - yes, that's the tricross I was talking about. My wife is borrowing it from a friend for the same tri and it seemed like a decent mix. I will have to give it a more thorough test ride.
