Hi guys, wonder if could get some advice.
Ive been looking at a couple of bikes over the last few months, alu and carbon, and mostly Cannondales and Canyons
Not only am i stuck on which brand makes better bikes, but also whether its worth me getting an aluminium bike or a Carbon bike.
Bear in mind that i am a fairly invested cyclist, riding three years and have a solid alu bike already (Specialized Allez Campag Centaur)
Price wise, Canyons are unbeatable, and they are all well regarded, but naturally there is no try before you buy. Cannondales also have a solid reputation but are pricier and not as well equipped, but my local bike shop stocks them applenty (though i am not sure in my size i'm 6 ft 4).
I have a budget of around £2500, could push that towards maybe £2700, perhaps. For that i could get a great speced alu canyon or carbon canyon, alu around £500 cheaper of course. I could also get a averagely speced cannondale for that money, either a synapse with 105 or supersix with 105 both of which are regarded as great bikes.
Would love to hear from anyone with experience with either of these brands and their various models.
