I'm an mtb convert... due to repeated injuries. Wishing to start TT events. Any guidance on a good but not too expensive TT or all-round road machine would be helpfull.

Also... what's a good reliable aero wheelset that will still perform in the hills?

The Cervelo One is a decent ride that's adaptable to both. Also, the Giant TCRs are good buys.

They are the ones who invented the current time trial/tri geometry. They've been doing it the longest and really have their stuff down. You can probably find their low-end bike (the Kilo) for under a grand. It has mostly 105 stuff. All of their bikes share the exact same geometry. They come in 650 or 700c wheel sizes. If you ride a 55 or larger they recommend 700c. I have a QR Ti-Phoon that I love. It's made in the Lightspeed factory and has a strong family resemblance to the Ultimate. It is extremely stable yet very maneuverable while in the aero bars. The frame is the stiffest in bottom bracket area of any bike I have owned, yet is very forgiving.

Best of luck,
