When you want to get into triathlons, there is always the question – do you go with a tri bike, or a road bike? The tri bike is undoubtedly better for most tri course while the road bike is better for the training leading up to the tri. Tri shops have been fitting entry level triathletes on road bikes that are then modified by adding zero offset posts and aerobars for triathlon use for years, but with the Alias, Women have another option straight off the showroom floor. Called the Alias because of its dual nature, with clip on aerobars and a zero offset post, the Alias is a race oriented tri bike with aerodynamically shaped tubes and a steeper seat tube angle (where as the example above, the bikes have slacker seat tubes and need forward offset posts). Remove the clip ons and add the 35mm set back seat post, and the Alias geometry is tuned to handle like a road bike on the open road. The alias also offers additional top tube stowage with the Remora bolt on storage box.
If you can only have one bike for training or racing, the Alias is ready straight out of the box.
