I am looking into a new bike this fall/ next spring.
I currently ride a Felt F5 from 2013. Its been my do everything bike for 6 years now.
This is my time with trainer road and it’s been fantastic so far. From doing workouts and the podcast I really like the idea of time trial. I have never raced a time trial before and it seems like the world of TT is a very deep rabbit hole.
I love riding my bike and have recently stepped away from my previous main sport of Olympic Weightlifting and the bike seems to be filling the gap nicely.
Both sports seem very linear. Power is power and you either make the lift or you don’t.
I have a few questions:
I am wondering if there is a different between an aero road bike with extensions / time trial bars attached compared to a dedicated time trial bike?
Would you/ how would you choose your new bike based on your body shape/geometry?
I live in Bergen Norway and the felt f5 will carry on to be my do everything bike considering the weather. The new bike will be on the trainer and for future endeavors in racing for the most part.
Thanks for your time.
