    Pinarello FP1, Kestrel Talon, or?

    Hi All,

    My main bike is a LOOK 566, but I'm trying to buy a decent training bike.
    My budget is around $1,500 max in US dollars.
    I found 2 bikes that are different in frame material and geometry, but close in components. Which of these would you choose. Or do you have other recommendations?

    Thanks in advance

    2010 Pinarello
    Frame Tubing Material - 6061 alloy & 30HM3K carbon
    Brakeset - MO.s.t. B-Max brakes
    Shift Levers - Shimano 105
    Front Derailleur - Shimano 105
    Rear Derailleur - Shimano 105
    Crankset - MO.s.t. C3 50/34
    Hubs - Shimano WH-R500
    Rims - Shimano WH-R500

    2011 Kestrel Talon
    Frame Tubing Material - 700 K Carbon Fiber
    Brakeset - SHIMANO 105
    Shift Levers - SHIMANO 105
    Front Derailleur - SHIMANO 105
    Rear Derailleur - SHIMANO 105
    Crankset - Shimano 105 53/39 - I need a compact crank, so this bike will actually cost $200 more
