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).
