Which bike...

Hi all!

So I've got be choice of two bikes! Both are £1000 and I was just looking for a little advice and thoughts of people!

First choice is a Giant TCR composite 2 from 2012. It has ultegra shifters and front and rear mech, with 105 rest of spec.

Or...

Cannondale supersiz evo 105... It is the older ten speed 105 though!

Any advice is greatly appreciated!!

Thanks guys!

Which one fits you better and makes you smile more. Are they new or used?

I've always loved a cannondale... But the giant just feels a little more racy and quicker!

Issue there... Both black! Why less black??
Need to find something else then. Black bikes are slow and boring ;)

Not of the specific models, but the TCR Composite would be similar to my Defy Advanced.... but even more responsive! I love mine to bits :biggrin:

Frame is good and will last 10 years plus easily. 105 brake calipers are about £25, which are nicer. The Tektros aren't bad, but change the pads for better ones :smile:
