Both those bikes are too nice for a newbie. Hope this helps.Wild said:Hi guys -
Somewhat of a newbe,
Seriously, once you're up in that category it comes down to personal fit and personal preferences. What exactly is it that you're trying to decide? Durability of the framesets? Ride quality? How big are you, and I mean that in a cycling way, as that may make a difference in which might be the better frame for your size/weight.
I'll let the techies take over from here as either of those bikes are currently way out of my price range. Either would be nice though.
