A choice between these 2 bikes.

I must have a more comfortable/relaxed road bike.
My LBS has made an offer for my Giant Defy carbon.......not what I hoped but I suppose realistic.
My son wants my Giant Talon 1 hardtail although IMO its too small for him.
I am trying to decide between
a) Cannondale Quick 1 (ally frame as they no longer do the carbon frame version).
b) Whyte Stirling.
Similar geometry. Both 105s. Similar weight (so I am told) at around 10 Kg.
Any thoughts/comments welcome.
I also fancy the Spec' Sirrus but £1500 and its not even 105s puts me off (plus ive yet to actually sit on one).

Get the Whyte, something a bit different from a British brand :okay:

I'm sure Whyte make fine bikes but imagine when you tell a fellow enthusiast you have one, its a bit like saying you've got a chair, very worthy but rather boring.
Names like Cinelli, Bianchi would engender a much more enthusiastic response, even latter day brands such as Specialized, Cannondale etc.

You can get the 2019 Sterling for £850 (you don't mention which model year you're considering)...it's just so much prettier than a Triban...

Medium fits around 5'6-5'9 ish, large 5'10 to 6'2 ish
Thanks for that.
It is a medium I need.
My LBS is more expensive but they will set it up for me and buy my Defy.
I realise I am fortunate but getting best service etc is more important than saving a few quid. I do appreciate your suggestion.

Please tell me you are not serious
