I'm just starting out in triathlon and don't know what bike to buy?

There is so much choice out there and if you’re looking to spend a little less on your first bike, if you’re just starting out, I'd recommend taking a look at second hand bikes rather than buying something brand new as people are always selling fantastic bikes for awfully low prices.

Trust me, when I sell a bike I’m never getting what I think it’s worth! It's likely there will be nothing wrong with it other than it’ll probably be badly maintained and a few years old. Then you can easily take it into the nearest decent bike shop and they’ll get it running like new anyway.
