Hello all,

I am looking to enter into road riding I have been riding my scott scale for a year or so now, and decided I wanted to look at a road bike. I know this a big change but I am planning to set a goal and work to competing in a triathlon.

without seeing the condition of the bikes and trying the shifting, etc, its hard to say which will be better for you.

In reality, the size / fit of the frame is going to be your biggest difference. I'd say find somebody more knowledgeable with bike fit, and mechanics locally, and have them look at the bikes for fit and maintenance issues.

If you've got a decent local bike shop, you should be able to convince them to help you out a bit - possibly for a fee, possibly not if they think they are going to get some sales/work out of a good relationship with you...
