    Hi, I am 17 (less than a month till 18) and wanting to get a road bike. I plan on using it very often, and im going to try and compete in a tri in the next year or so. Ive got about 700-850 dollar to spend on a bike. Ive narrowed down the bikes to these three.

    Felt F-80
    Trek 1200
    Specialized Allez Sport Triple

    They all seem pretty much the same. I am going to test ride them next weekend and see which one I think feels better. What do you all think would be the best one to get, and why?

    You are already headed in the right direction -- test ride them and decide which one you like. If two of them seem comparable, decide based on the quality of components, weight, etc. Perhaps also check the warranty offered and if the shop(s) offers different levels of service included with the bikes.
