Hi,
I came up with these two options, the CAAD7 Cannodale 2004 and the Kestrel Talon 2003.
Both full Ultegra.
What do you say?
Which will be better for me (I am 5'7" and 132 pound)?
Thanks,
Ron

Do they both fit the same?

Im thinking they have different geometries... namely TT.

It depends...

I've logged lots of miles on two very similar frames - Kestrel 200sci and C'dale R3000. It really depends on the type of riding you want to do. The Kestrel is carbon with a little longer wheelbase (not tri geometry, though), while the C'dale is a stiffer, more aggressive frame. Either would do well for high-level recreational riding, although I might give the nod to the Kestrel for longer distance riding. Kestrel is popular among triathletes who want road geometry, but if crits/road races are your thing, the 'dale would be hard choice to beat!
