I am shopping for my first road bike and i had it all picked out for the 2011 CAAD10 105 in red. I test drove the CAAD9 late last year and really liked it. I started looking around to make sure I'm getting the best I can for $1,400 price range I noticed the Giant TCR 1.
Right off the bat the TCR looks so sexy, has almost the same components as the CAAD10. And now I'm leaning towards the Giant just by looks and specs, although I have not seen or ridden one. What would be the weight of the Giant TCR 1 vs the CAAD10 105? What would you recommend and why?
Cannondale CAAD10 105
Giant TCR 1
I commute 28k a day for about 4-5 times a week, so I would ride this almost every day. Currently I have a MTB with semi slicks.
I live in Toronto and I'm just waiting for the snow to stop, so I can pick one up .
Thanks for helping out.
