Bottom Line:   
Got this bike pretty cheap as it had a couple of scratches. After three years of riding, it still rocks. Frame is very light, and very stiff, but still has a more compliant ride then most other bikes of rode. Did a week long tour on this bike with no problems.

After two years the back wheel cracked, pretty much all Ritchey back wheels crack. Replaced with a dura ace/Open pro wheel set and bingo, instantly better bike. Everything else other then the chain is original equipment.

These plantinum tubing Schwinns are excellent frames.

Strengths:    Price, wheight, components, saddle, wheels.

Weaknesses:    pedals, but you can upgrade the pedals for cheap.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike at a great price, even at full retail of $1499. Ultra light frame set, Ultegra cranks, brakes, shifter, levers. Dura-ace rear der., Ritchey wheels, stem, bars, pedals. Selle italia saddle. This bike is light and stiff. Great acceleration. No reason to spend $1500 on a frame set when you get the whole bike for $1499.

If you were to consider the purchase of one of these 2 bikes, only taking into consideration their specs, which would it be? Assume the same price, which they are after discounts. Pros and cons?
