I'm trying to decide whether to get 2015 Fuji Declaration or 2016 Mercier Kilo TT Pro. I will mainly use the bike for riding short distances around my area (20-30 miles at most). The wide tires on the Fuji looks very appealing to me plus the fact that I could get it in less than a week from a bike shop 40 mins. away. I am however, unsure about the quality of the rest of the components on the Declaration in comparison to the Kilo TT Pro as I've read a number of posts here favoring the Kilo TT Pro over others when it comes to value. Would anyone give some input on which might be a better pick? The 2015 Declaration costs $400 while the 2016 TT Pro is $450.
I'm a click or phone call away from ordering either as I am itching for a new ride before summer vacation ends. Looking forward to your replies. Thanks!
