Thanks advance for any insight.
Well i can't comment much on the bikes...I would typically opt for the one you rode but I have owned BD bikes and they are of good quality, if you KNOW it will fit properly then go for it. That said the above seems like a bad idea...buy the bike...dial in the fit over a couple of rides...then do the century.
