Hi all, After much research I've whittled my new bike choice down to two machines: the Cannondale Caad 10 with Ultegra which I have found for £1450 or the Specialized Tarmac Sport with 105 for £1,500. Obviously the 'Dale is aluminium and the Spec is carbon, but which will be the better bike? Both frames are I understand well regarded, but as a newbie to road riding I just can't decide. My head says the Caad is better value, but my heart says I really want a carbon bike. The last thing I would want to do is get the Caad and then be craving for carbon a few months later. Riding-wise I'm looking to do club runs, sportives and maybe some racing. Any opinions gratefully received!
