Need help folks!
After months of researching, I have come down to two bikes - CAAD10 and Bianchi Impulso. I have tried to research more on these but have not been able to come across anyone who have ridden both of these bikes and can provide a comparison.
My use: Mainly riding for leisure and long rides but with an occasional road race thrown in. Hence, will want a bike that is responsive, handles well yet comfortable. And only in aluminum for the moment. I am 181 cms with 34 inch inseam if that is of any use.
I have heard great things about the CAAD10. But I read that the Bianchi Impulso was actually used in the Paris Roubaix last year and came in 6th! Surely, it will not be a slouch either? Both are also raved on comfort.
I live in a country where test drives are not possible. So cannot take that option. Strange yes, but I have to work with what I have. I would appreciate any one who has actually ridden both of them to tell me:
1) Views on handling compared to each other
2) Views on efficiency and response compared to each other
3) Overall comparison and views on the two bikes
I would also appreciate if you can keep the views only to these two bikes because many other brands are not available here.
Thanks a ton
