Hi all,

 

Getting a new bike. Stuck between two.

 

Same price for both, the amazingly reviewed Giant TCR advanced 1 with Ultegra Groupset, or a 2017 TCR Advanced Pro 2 with a 105 groupset.

 

Which would you recommend? 

 

Thanks,

Advanced Pro 2 for me.

You will not notice a difference between the groupsets. Both are great.

The pro has a full carbon fork and frame, while the non pro's fork is carbon with an aluminium steerer. I guess the main difference there would be weight. Personally I would for the pro as it's harder to upgrade a fork than it is other components (at least a fork that matches the rest of the bike) and as P.Radio says, there's not much real world difference between Ultegra and 105 (other than weight).

Pro has a carbon steerer fork.

Went for the advance 2 myself and it is great but I change bikes every 2-3 years.

I would get the Pro 2.
