Hey guys, new to this forum and road biking. I have narrowed my choices down to these potential bikes. Obviously one is carbon and one is aluminum. I am sticking to Giant bikes because I can get a very good deal. I was just wondering what you guys think is the better bike to get? They are both the same cost.

Thanks, heres the links to Bike specs and pics.

what kind of rider are you? how old are you? how long have you been riding? what do you want to do with the bike?

tcr: aluminum - not a smooth a ride as the ocr
ocr: cf - smooth
tcr: racing gemoetry
ocr: more upright/laid back geometry
tcr: reasonably good parts w/ultegra/105/ksyrium equipe wheels
ocr: 105 is good, have read bad reports on the truativ cranks, wheels are kind of mediocre as well.

that's just a quick list. your choice.
