More important than brand etc. is fit.  Determine your price point and
look for the bike that fits and feels the best from there.  People will
nail me on this, but a new $350 bike whether Trek, Bianchi, Cannondale,
etc. is a $350 bike, and holds true on up to around $1000.  A $350 bike
that fits is better than a $700 one that doesn't.  Look for a reputable
shop and they can provide you with a bike fitting.  Then shop around for
one that suits you.  Fortunately, if you are between about 5'8" and 6'2",
you can get a production bike fit without too much adjustment.

I am an 17yr. old going on 18yr. male looking for a change.  I am an
avid MTBer but want to go to the world of road/multisport.  I was
wondering for my situation what should I be looking for in a new bike
as far as brand and type.  If you could give me some specifics such as
certian bikes within brands I would greatly appriciate it.
Thanks for you suggestions,
Eamon J. Wood

You might also want to know that there are quite a number of Off-Road
Triathlons that you use your mountain bike in.
