Looking for a cross bike for some races, winter trainer, and occasional commuter. What do you guys think is the best value?
A used 2010 Colnago World Cup, a used 2009 Pinarello CX Alu, or a new Motobecane Fantom Cross PRO Titanium?
I like the Colnago and Pinarello because of the brand. I really don't like the Colnago's component spec though. The Pinarello has a decent component spec. The Motobecane is interesting because it is titanium and has a good component spec. Not sure on weights...but I think the Colnago is around 20 lbs...the Pinarello around 19 lbs...and I'm speculating 18 lbs on the Motobecane (their TEAM Ti model is 17 lbs with a better wheelset but has heavier Ultegra instead of slightly ligher SRAM Rival).
Any thoughts on which bike would be the best buy? Leaning towards Pinarello and Motobecane. Having a hard time deciding which of those two though!
