racing help

My son is a Tri athlete with promise, he has raced in 14 triathlons in the last three years and has won 9 of 10 two seconds and thirds. Last year he moved into the 11-14 year old USAT group and has been winning his races.
My problem and what I am look for direction from you is .... at 12 he is growing like a weed and I can not afford the bikes he needs for his height (now 5 7)
I had been successful finding nice local bikes from race friends (current bike is a Cannondale r800) Ebay bike scare me because you have little recourse on bikes that have been ridden into the ground. He needs a 56cm this year. Nicer bikes at this size usually belong to folks that really ride and put hard miles on them.
Does anyone have, know of anyone, know of a good website or bike shop that deals with quality race bikes for a developing triathlete? Many thanks for your response, be safe and have fun
