Bike advice - Giant/Felt/Cannondale
I am looking to get back onto a bike after about 20 years so I can do shorter distance tris and to just ride. I have been reading, looking, and riding a variety of bikes and have decided to go with a road bike at this point and am looking in the $1000 range (have to get a bike for my wife too!). I have narrowed the field down to the Giant OCR1 ($900 - compact geometry, full ultegra, carbon fork), Felt F70 ($1069 - reg geometry, full 105, carbon fork and seat stays), and Cannondale R700 ($1100 - reg geometry, 105 w/ultegra rear derail., carbon fork). I'm 5'7" w/about a 29.5" inseam. The rides are all nice and I'm having trouble deciding. Of course the cranks, wheels, tires, handlebars, and brakes are all different which makes it harder. Am I over thinking this? Any experience with these bikes, suggestions, feedback helpful!! Thanks!!
