I purchased the Specialized Transition Expert just before last season kicked off with a view to competing at Ironman Louisville.
The bike was set up and fitted to me which allows a comfortable aero position which is maintainable for hours on end without consequence. Obviously the fit is very specific to the individual and Specialized have always suited me.

I've been very pleased with the handling and responsiveness through corners. Speed on straights is good as I am able to stay comfy in aero position.

Only issue I had was the wheel rubbing on the frame, but that was easily rectified with a small adjustment using an allen key.

Would highly recommend to anyone, along with a proper set up and fit.

Thanks for your review Dylan. Specialized certainly are producing some top notch bikes and have invested heavily in triathlon in recent years.

The key thing you mention in your review is the bike fitting. It doesn't matter how good the bike is, if it doesn't fit, then it won't ride well, won't be comfortable and will effectively be a waste of money.
