Triathlon - 2008 Used QRoo Seduza v. 2009 New Felt B16

I've got great deals on both of these for about hte same price. The Seduza is Dura-Ace/Ultegra mix and the B16 is Dura-Ace/105 mix. I will be using my own wheelset so the wheels don't matter. Just looking for any advice or suggestions.

I would definately take the Seduza... one of my tri bikes is the Lucero, which is basically the same frame as the Seduza, just a very slightly different carbon layup.
But, you should really pick the one that fits you best... geometric diffferences between the Felt and the QR is quite big...

I agree with audiojan. I too have a lucero and rode the felt, which didnt fit me well. Ride both and one will fit better
Besides fit, I'll say this...
One of them was designed in the wind tunnel and has a warranty.
One of them was designed to look aero and does not have a warranty.
Both bikes are built solid, but hot damn if there aren't freak accidents with seatpost clamps, carbon forks, etc. P.S. I chose a Felt B2 over a Caliente and am very, very glad I did. I would have always had that thought in the back of my mind if the slightly bulkier, less airfoiled tubes were giving up some time.
