I was wondering if I could get an opinion. I will be looking at these 2 bikes soon - my first real road bike. I know I need to ride them to see if one "feels better."

My main question is that the Roubaix is full carbon and the via nirone is aluminum with carbon forks. I don't think I'll be able to tell the difference on a 3-5 mile ride.

Both cost about the same. The Roubaix is Shimano 105 equipped and the Bianchi is Campy Veloce.

So, I guess my question is, will a full carbon frame be significantly more comfortable on longer rides as compared to an Al/Carbon?

Thanks for the advice.

Thanks for the info. Indeed, fit will be a huge factor, but the do appear to have similar geometries. Thanks for the detailed response.
