I'm planning to do some triathlons in the near future (draft legal, non drafting and off road triathlons).
To compete in these 3 types of triathlon I certainly need to upgrade my bike stable. Therefore I have a budget of € 2000 ($ 2500) to invest.
What should I do?
a) Built a cyclo cross or 29er bike where I can compete these 3 types of triathlon with
b) Built a road bike with clip on bars (for draft legal and non drafting) and a mountain bike (off road). If I would take this option which parts can I keep from the spec lists above?
