Looking at new road bike. Due to offer available i started looking at the CAAD10 which is currently £1000 for the 105 version. However, whenever i speak to anyone about it I get the same old stuff about the racing geometry. My LBS recommended a CUBE GTC race 105 for £1250. Now i only ride a couple (say 3 max) hours at a time. Is the more relaxed geometry and carbon really going to make that much difference to me? I never ride longer most rides are about an hour to 90 mins and/or the bike leg on a triathlon (oly dist max at the minute).
Just cant make my mind up on where to go on this. tried both bikes and tbh i'm struggling to notice a massive difference (although it wasnt back to back test). also, i believe if i get the 56 CAAD then it shoudl give more relaxed postion against the 54? (I'm a deffo 58 on the Cube).
Any thoughts/opinions genuinely welcomed!!!
btw - i know these are v different bikes/geometry and thats probably the crux of my question - does it make such a difference to me?
