Looking for someone with knowledge on both. Desire is for a very stiff race bike for crits and ~60 mile hilly road races. Don't want/need a comfy century bike, just a pure race bike that is very stiff. The bike will be built with SRAM Force. I'm coming off a Kuota Kebel that broke in half in 3 places when a lady in a SUV rolled through a stop sign and used her rear passenger window to bring me to a sudden stop. I really liked the bike, but it did lack a bit in the stiffness department. Have some time to shop while healing takes place.
