Mel,Mel Erickson said:Assuming they both fit, take the Kestrel. Giants are a dime a dozen, Kestrel Talons aren't as common. You may or may not like the Kestrel design, it is different. The Giant is a much more common sloping top tube design. Fuji now owns Kestrel. If buying a NOS frame from a dealer check on the warranty.

It's a really good choice if you get into Tri/Duathlon in the future.
I almost bought a Kestrel over my Raleigh, but they didn't have my size at the time. One of these days I might be calling BD to pick one up.
