The bike of choice is a Tri Rig Omni. As the name suggests, it’s a triathlon bike, or more specifically, a non-drafting triathlon bike. It’s designed to be used with aero bars but has the versatility to fit drop bars if you so wish.

First things first, other than love it or leave it aesthetics, the design of this is purely about aerodynamics. The only rule Ironman triathlon is governed by is the balance of straight line speed against crosswind stability. In this case, that has meant firstly making the bike insanely narrow, the theory being that less frontal area is better, and then secondly, removing as many trailing edges as possible between the front and back of the bike. Here we have no downtube, and we have no seat stays. Let's see how it compares to a 'super bike'...
