Pinarello FP1, Kestrel Talon, or?

Hi All,

My main bike is a LOOK 566, but I'm trying to buy a decent training bike.
My budget is around $1,500 max in US dollars.
I found 2 bikes that are different in frame material and geometry, but close in components. Which of these would you choose. Or do you have other recommendations?

Thanks in advance

2010 Pinarello
Frame Tubing Material - 6061 alloy & 30HM3K carbon
Brakeset - MO.s.t. B-Max brakes
Shift Levers - Shimano 105
Front Derailleur - Shimano 105
Rear Derailleur - Shimano 105
Crankset - MO.s.t. C3 50/34
Hubs - Shimano WH-R500
Rims - Shimano WH-R500

2011 Kestrel Talon
Frame Tubing Material - 700 K Carbon Fiber
Brakeset - SHIMANO 105
Shift Levers - SHIMANO 105
Front Derailleur - SHIMANO 105
Rear Derailleur - SHIMANO 105
Crankset - Shimano 105 53/39 - I need a compact crank, so this bike will actually cost $200 more
