Road Bike Recommendations for Half Ironman

I've been running for a little over a year and done a few 10k races and the Scotia half marathon.

Need to chnage it up and looking to get into a triathlon. Specifically, I want to do the half ironman.

I'm ok with swimming (swam competitive in school) and will sign up maybe for some masters swimming to get back in properly.

As for the bike, I need to figure out what to buy (as well as an indoor trainer to use with it). I have a Raleigh mountain bike, but that won't cut it for a tri.

Male, 41, 5' 11" 140lbs if it matters.

Can't help with specifics, but you should probably state your budget because the price range for bikes is large.

There is a biking thread in this forum that can help out.

I bought used and it worked well for me. I liked the pricing for new bikes at My Little Bike Shop in Toronto (College Street). But the owner pointed me to a used carbon road bike that was cheaper than the specific bike I was circling.
