which is a better bike??
 
Hello,
I want to know which is technically a better, faster, lighter, best gearing components combination for triatholons and bike racing. I have found 3 bikes on ebay and another from a website. I am currently on a Giant ocr1 that has done over 2,000km and nearly time to upgrade. Giant cost $1450.

Bike 1 OLMO DYNAMIC - BY NAME AND BY NATURE. This is a very nice frame and fork set, built with quality componenty and a bargain clearance price - all brand new. The olmo frame is built from light weight alloy with carbon rear stays. The fork is complete carbon - including the steerer. ritchey wcs bar and stem give superior strength and light weight. The group set is shimano ultegra 9 speed, and the wheels are shimano 550's. Great bike and dirt cheap - Geometry - this is "large" - 50cm c to c seat tube (55cm c to top)- actual top tube is 56cm and effective top tube is 57.5cm good luck. Cost $2000 AussieDollar

BUILT WITH FULL SHIMANO ULTEGRA 10 SPEED COMPONENTRY (That's right, Ultegra STI levers, brake calipers, cranks and b/b, front derailer, rear derailer, chain and cassette) - NOTHING COMES CLOSE TO THIS ON PRICE! VINCOLO ALLOY ANATOMICAL BARS, FOUR BOLT HEADSTEM AND SEAT POLE ARE GREAT PRODUCTS. VUELTA COMP WHEELS WOULD BE EASILY SUITED ON A HIGHER LEVEL BIKE - SEMI AERO RIMS WITH MACHINED SIDE WALLS, BLADED SPOKES FOR DURABILTY AND STIFFNESS, HASSLE FREE HUBS. VITTORIA ZAFFIRO CERTAINLY LOOK AFTER THE TYRE SIDE OF THINGS WITH A FAST YET DURABLE RIDE. WHAT A GREAT PACKAGE - YOU DO SEE SIMULAR BIKES ARROUND - BIKE HAS BEEN FULLY ASSEBLED AND ADJUSTED BEFORE IT IS BOXED. SO ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PUT THE FRONT WHEEL ON, PUT THE SEAT POLE IN AND ADJUST THE HANDLE BARS.

I'd go for the Olmo. It's on clearance, so even though it costs essentially the same as numbers 2 and 3, you would be getting a better deal.

Just my opinion, of course.
