    The only things that really count, are which bike fits YOU best and gives YOU the best ride.

    Not sure you can go wrong with either brand or bike. Test ride them both (and others) and get the one you like best. Sorry, but that's the best advice I can give.

    Test ride the bike. Either one are great bikes, so it's whatever you prefer. If you have test ridden them and still can't decide, I suggest posting in the Road forum, or flipping a coin.

    There have been many good suggestions.

    Go with the one that fits the best.

    Test ride both and go with the one you like.

    Or you can go with the one whose looksyou like the best.

    Or go with the one with the nicest color.

    I have not ridden either bike but both have excellent reputations. I am sure either bike would be a good choice.
