|Weird Question: most triathlon-like road bike?||empacher6seat|

|Considering I'm probably never going to get into road racing, and I'm getting more and more into triathlons, I'm torn inbetween getting a tri bike and a road bike. Money is the biggest deciding factor in deciding what I get, so I was thinking of getting a "tri-like" road bike and just tweaking a few things. From what I understand from previous posts here, a forward seat post, aero bars and possibly an aero fork are what I'd need.
Anyways, are there any frames avaliable that are "sort of" tri geometry? If I had a stanard road frame with the forward seat post etc, would I even need a more tri specific frame?

|The talon uses 700c wheels, but comes with a proprietary seatpost with two positions. One for forward time trial/triathalon and a rear for a more relaxed road position. You can also pick up a whole bike with 105 parts for the price of a regular Kestrel frame.|

Have a look at this site, lots of good information. The Soloist model might be just what you're looking for.
