    I am getting into Tri's after mountain biking and running for quit some time. I was looking at a 58 cm Cannondale Ironman 800.

    I am 6'1 3/4 with a 34 inch inseam. Any thoughts on this bike being big enough for me. Thanks for your help.

    Post your question on the slowtwitch.com triathlon forum.

    My guess is that you would be OK on that bike, but a lot more goes into proper tri/TT fit than inseam and height. The best (not necessarily cheapest) answer is to get your bike fit analyzed by an experienced fitter. Some of the different brands are quite disparate in how they fit individual riders--when using aero bars, issues like head tube length, seat tube/head angle, saddle fore/aft adjustment range etc...
