76 degree seat tube angle...The Flash

Will this work for a road bike? My current bike was set up for tri's, but I wanna be a roadie again. Will this angle be detrimental to my roadie ambitions? Overall, the bike is extremely comfortable for me.....

Hi Scott! With the time trial geometry your going to be pretty far forward. If your happy, who is anybody to tell you different. I think you will climb better on standard road geometry, 73 degree seat tube and head tube. Plus with the slacker headtube of the time trial geometry, the road geometry will have a shorter wheel base, plus steer and corner quicker. If it's in your budget get a road frame, if not, ride what you have.
