I'm having a hard time deciding which one of those two bikes, Charge Juicer Hi 2010 or Genesis Equilibrium 20 2011, is the "better" one.
I need a winter training bike (mudguards) so I Initially narrowed my choice to the Equilibrium. However, I noticed that the Juicer also dropped in price and now both bikes cost almost the same.
Well, not really: Juicer costs € 1,032 with shipping and I could buy it with credit card. This has the advantage that I could immidatelly order the bike.
The Equilibrium amounts to € 1,375 without shipping and I'd probably need to transfer money via on-line banking. This means that I'd have to wait till December untill I'd have the necessary money.
My sympathies are still in favour of the Equilibrium, it gives me a solid impression. The Juicer on the other hand has a touch of a "cheapo". Both bikes are equipped with Shimano 105, however.
I'm really not a hardcore biker, just to keep my fitness, but I nevertheless love beautiful and well working things.
Please help me to decide.
