Hmm... are you sure you need a size 54? If memory suits me - you'd probably be a better fit on your typical 52... but there's a lot more to it than my memory of your (lack of) height.
You say you're looking to do triathlons - will that be your main purpose of a road bike? If you only plan to ride road for time trials or training for TT you may want to look into a used TT setup. If you anticipate more road riding and getting with some groups I'd look at a road setup. What's the budget? PM if you like.

:scared holy shit dude! i had the craziest moment this morning on the way to work! i was on t-road going pretty fast. came up to the downhill right-hander and ran wide. ended up in the grassy/hilly part on the opposite side of the road. hit a huge bump. the forks bottomed out and i tagged my nuts pretty hard on the tank. there's a big scratch on my tank pad from my zipper. hit the bump so hard that i flew a couple feet out of my seat. don't know how but i was able to hang on and ride it out. pulled over to check things out. the bike was fine but i'm obviously a little shaken.
Hey man, could you do me a favor? I'd like to get a copy of the picture we took when we all went to GP with Jeremy. The one where we were all standing by the bike/paddock girls. I think it was me, you, mastablasta, graham, jrow and tommy. If you don't have it, could you ask Jeremy? Thanks man.
bearings ok? need axle grease? have you checked the brakes? take the pads out, clean the calipers, push the pistons back then put everything back together. put the caliper bolts on finger tight then hold the lever down as you wrench them the rest of the way.
i just put in new pads. if you need a hand, let me know.
edit: i think it's most likely the pistons need a good cleaning
