Cannondale Quick 5 vs Giant Via 2
Hi, I currently have a trek 7100 for 2 years, and thought it's time for upgrade.
Twice I tried to test a Giant Via 2 on the advice of a coworker who is an experienced rider. But both times they either didn't have my size or not in stock. One shop said i'd be better off with a Cannondale Quick 5. My purposes are basically commuter, getting about in the city. I still want decent performance obviously. I would compromise a bit of comfort for performance.
I did try the Cannondale quick 5, since i was there. I liked that it was lighter. But still wondering if i should wait and try the Via 2. They are both roughly the same price.
-$549 for the cannondale, shop said they'd put a bike rack and bottle holder included in that price
-$520 for the Via
Does anyone else have any opinions about these bikes relative to one another?
I couldn't find anything online comparing these two so thought i'd ask.
thanks a lot
