I know one that fits me best but as far as getting the most bang for the buck (components and what not). I am going to be doing olympics and HIM in the future so looking to upgrade.

If you want a tri bike (not a road with clip-ons) I cant see how you could go wrong with a Felt B14/16 or a Cervelo P1/P2. Or even a Specialized Transition Comp can be had at your price point. Lots of good bikes available especially this time of year. If you have a hard time deciding, buy the one you get the best deal on or the one that looks the nicest to you (all else regarding fit being the same).

The Trek Speed Concept 7.0 (when it comes out): http://www.trekbikes.com/...pt_7/speedconcept70/

You could save a bit more and go with the SC2 (same aerodynamics, but an Alum. frame).

They are the purple line:

Cervelo P2, I know guys who've gotten the P3 for $3k so I'm sure you could find a P2 for your price.

"Or even a Specialized Transition Comp can be had at your price point..."

I got a very lightly used 2009 Transition Pro full DA for $2200 off the bay. In my very humble opinio, there is little limit to what you can get for $2500 if you are a patient shopper and don't mind having a few hundred miles on the bike when you get it.
