    I agree with Canker; I would buy the Giant... unless the shop also has a leftover 2014 Trance 3 in your size. If that were the case, I'd negotiate for it instead. :D :thumb:

    better idea: drop bars on a 29er MTB frame. then you can run anywhere from a 29x2.3 to 700x40 to even 700x25 if you're sadistic.
