Giant Trinity Composite 2
The draw: Stands out from the crowd

While Giant may not be fully committed to the needs of triathletes, the Trinity Composite 2 boasts a frame with aero bona fides that you won’t see on every transition rack. If you want a bike with tri-friendly geometry that stands out at an affordable sticker price, this fits the bill. However, the aerobars create a very tense wrist grip, and component quality is lacking: Shimano’s base-level Tiagra groupset has a relatively short lifespan, and the side-actuated brakes aren’t on par with most calipers.
