I am female, 5 ft 2in, looking to purchase a new road bike after riding a Ridgeback Velocity for the past 2 years. I can't make my mind up between the Specialised Dolce Elite or the Giant Avail 2, both just under £800 and appear similar in components.

anybody willing to give their opinion/advice?

You ridden either? Which one feels better, fits better?

Really no noticeable difference? Which shop treats you better?

Still no difference? Which color do you like more?

Basically which one makes you think "[email protected] I want to ride this bike!", which one are you dreaming about at night and can't live without (ok, maybe the dreaming thing only happens to me??). If it's neither, maybe you should look at a few more; there are tons of bikes out there. Every bike I own I had a "this one is THE ONE" moment when I test rode it; the ones I didn't and bought anyway I rarely rode and have since sold.

I'd personally go with the Giant, but that's because Specialized bikes don't seem to fit me quite right and Giant bikes seem to fit like they were built for me. Both are good bikes though.
