Litespeed Archon vs. TCR Advanced SL ISP
If anyone happens to have ridden both what do you think? Or let me know if you have experience with either. When comparing, consider it from the perspective that I could get either for roughly the same price and that they would have the same components (except seatpost and headset of course). I am 175 pounds and the bike will be raced often but also ridden for pretty much everything else.

This can only be your call. You will get a lot of opinions here. I actually rode both of these bikes over a week long period riding six different bikes.
My take is that you have to decide if this is a lifetime frame purchase or not. If you want this to be the last frame you buy then get the Archon. It is smooth and rides great. If you want more performance out of a bike and get an almost titanium-like ride then go with the Giant. The Giant simple is the coolest thing I have ever riden. It's as stiff as a Cervelo R3 and smooths out all the rough stuff.
