Topic - would you use a time trial frame for ironman triathlon ?

misterb - on 05 Sep 2013
Hi there,
i've signed up for the nottingham outlaw ironman man triathlon next year , it has a pretty flat bike course which is nice.
I'm wondering if it's worth using a time trial frame for it?
At the moment i use a ridley orion carbon frame which i think is designed for sportives and the like , could i just whack a set of aero bars on that and hope for the best.
If it helps i am aiming to average between 19-21 mph for the distance so at this speed is it worth investing in a frame that i can transfer all my components on to for the race?
I am not planning to win the race or owt but it would be nice to set a good time and maybe place well in my category , 40-44
Any advice is appreciated.
Nick
