After the great responses from my other post last week. I have decided to start the process of either buying a TT Bike. or building one up (I have access to a good workshop and really enjoy mechanical projects like this)
Currently I will use my road bike with clip on aero bars for awhile for training and any initial races.
The plan is going to be mid volume SSB 1 + 2 - Sustained Power Build + 40K TT
I have no races planned yet as I have to figure out how the system works.
I live in Bergen Norway, if anyone has any information.
I have started to research and read about how to choose a frame size and style and I have some initial questions.
Would you recommend a bike fit prior to choosing a frame? I keep seeing ‘stack and reach, long and low, narrow and tall’ coming up.
How do older frames compare to new frames. Would an older model that fits your size better than a modern frame be the best option or does a new free (better technology, materials, etc.) trump this?
My focus is on the training and the bike will be a long term project as I am so new to time trial and have plenty of time.
Any and all advice you have would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time.
