Until you're an actual fit racer where equipment makes a difference, no bike of a given type is going to be "faster." The rider is what makes the bike fast when you're a recreational/enthusiast rider, not vice-versa.

Base your purchasing decision on what you can afford and how comfortable you are with having to potentially work on a used bike.
