I am a 15 year old junior racer searching for a reasonably affordable TT bike. However i am still growing so i need a bike that can grow with me. Basically, i need the most adjustable bike. my price limit is proabably around $3000. I've been looking at Specialized Transition Comp (most aero,most expensive) , Felt B12 (most adjustable?) , Cervelo P2C Ultegra (cheapest, proven quality) and an Argon 18 E-112 with a custom build kit (obscure, but with the nice option of choosing my components and it seems pretty adjustable). New suggestions are also welcome. thx

Do you really need a TT bike as a Junior? Im a junior racing in PA and you cant use tt bikes in a lot of jr races because ppl cant afford them (tour of pa is a great example where nobody in the u25 field could use tt bikes). Out of the list though, id go P2C. They are great bikes!

I'd look towards a Leader Bikes frame or a used Felt, Cervelo, etc. as it will be outgrown. Then again, any of the bikes you mentioned are OK, since you can always swap components with a new frame...:) Good luck!

true dat.
you can spec a leader 735tt with ultegra and zipp 404 clinchers for about
the price of the b12. race that for a year and upgrade the frame as you grow.
the ultegra should last you at least a couple seasons; the 404s would be great
race wheels and you can always get a set of neuvations for bombproof, inexpensive
trainers. make sure you stay within whatever rules govern your races(seat position
especially, given that you've listed bikes that can easily achieve 78deg STA.)
