Your measurements will be the same but the bike size may not be exactly the same. Most people take a slightly shorter top tube in a tri bike with steeper seat tube geometry. Just get a good fitting road bike and work out the tri stuff later. You would be well served to spend some time on a road bike first anyway. You will have no problem getting a passable tri position on it later if it fits well.
