Waddaya mean by "bad?" I've only ridden one full-on tri bike, and I hope never to do it again, but I'm an old slow guy just happy to be upright. IMO, anybody who even notices that you have a road setup on a tri frame is paying way too much attention to you....

Tri and TT frame geometry (seat tube angle, particularly) "rotates" your riding position forward so that "resting" on the aero bar is most likely the only comfortable position on the bike.

Granted, I've never ridden a tri bike, but they are notoriously poor handling. Countless professional riders have gone right off the road, or crashed in turns that they would have made on a normal road bike. It seems like a poor choice for a frame, and likely would result in a poor fit with drop bars instead of cow horns.
