Hi dude,

Welcome to the forum, I think a mod might be along in a bit to move your question to the 'bikes and kit' page where you are most likely to get a sensible answer. In the mean time enjoy the cafe - do you want cake or biscuit?

Both good makes and components.

It depends on your level of fitness really - try a test ride of a Caad 9 compact or if you see yourself improving go for a full on road set up of 39/52 and simply put a 28/29t cassette on the back.

If you want to race ultimately then I would argue that the CAAD 9 is the better racing bike.
The tripple on the giant will allow you to coast up hills easier

The CAAD9 clearly. Because I have one.

It's ace, I assure you. You will not be disappointed.

Of course the politically correct answer is to try as many bikes around that price point and buy the one that feels best ;)
