Not that one. You are looking for the Centurian Ironman. I had one. I swear some plumber is still wondering where all his cast iron tubing went. I think it weighed at least 24 lbs with Shimano 105. The real bonus was the Biopace chain rings.

Respectfully disagree - it has Triathlon Pro right in the name. We all know what Mark Allen was able to do with a Huffy. Either I buy this or wait until Ironman moves to the Zwift platform and I crush souls with the Tron bike.

He got it at Sears in 1999, probably for his asking price of $75, which adjusted for inflation is what, like a million dollars in 2019 funny money? He even says it's a "great deal". Go for it, find some pneumatic shifters for the stem, a quality 10 sp. gruppo, you're Kona bound.

I see zero downside. It says "PRO" right there on the bike. Do it. You'll be the envy of all slowtwitchers.

Since it is designed to work with 26" MTB wheels, if you ride it, you will DIE!

I might buy it while you are deciding what to do. It's another one of those things that I don't have yet.
