So Flat Footed goes with the Giant, as do Cycling Plus whereas 2wheels goes for PlanetX - I guess that epitomizes my issue - I just have no idea which to go for!!
I guess ultimately either one of the two is going to be a good bike and would I be right in assuming that if all the variables were kept equal then there wouldn't be a lot to choose between them on a given ride / race / time trial etc etc?
If that's the case then the Giant may win because I could potentially get it a lot sooner!!!
(I'll have a look at the Ribble too - just to give me more headache!)
Thanks - I did kind of think that the Planet X looks like the better bike on paper - I think that the price goes up to about £2.3k for the Giant with full integra.
My concern was that the N2A wouldn't offer the comfort that the Giant may (as my limited knowledge of bikes tells me that the N2A is more 'racier' whereas the Giant is maybe built a little more for comfort? I might be totally wrong there!!!)
The reason for the upgrade is that I'm thinking of doing a half ironman next year with a view to full ironman the year after so I'm after something that is going to be more efficient than my 10kg cross bike!!
Just wondering whether anyone can give me a bit of advice / help with upgrading my bike (currently have a cyclocross bike) to something a bit lighter.
The issue is that I really liked the Planet X RT58, then I saw the the Planet X N2A and thought that was the one - until I saw a friends Giant Defy 2 Advanced last night and read some of the reviews about it, that seems like a great bike........... now I don't know what to do!!
Does anyone have any thoughts / experience / input?
