Until you know that Triathlon is for you, any road bike will do. I did my first last year, but hired my bike.

You don't need to go down the aero TT route just yet, although I'm not sure your budget would allow you to anyway.

A secondhand Cervelo S1 would serve you well on the road and in TT guise with clip on aero bars for triathlon.

I still haven't lowered my S1 10mile TT time on my newer dedicated Tri bike :cry:
