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

Rear Derailleur - Shimano 105
Crankset - MO.s.t. C3 50/34
Hubs - Shimano WH-R500
