So what would make me choose one over the other? any reviews out there? anything else I should think of?



  • Assuming you are paying list price there are plenty of other bikes to consider in this price bracket. Your primary concern should be which is the best fit and which geometry suits your riding style/ type of riding you do.

    What has had you consider those bikes in particular and not Cervelo, Specialized, Time, Colnago or pretty much any other Top spec exotic bike?

    In my opinion buy the best frame, wheels and finishing kit you can bearing in mind that drivetrain etc can be upgraded at a later date.

    yes you should consider the Pinarello Prince as well, if it's within your budget.
  • Roadbike its the future its a american website,the yanks will slate anything only half decent!! Really good website has most makes of frames,bikes,wheels ect on review!! Get a look 585 there awsome!! Light,stiff but comfortable climbs with no effort and decends like its on rails!! Or if you want a cheaper option go for the 555,how much you got to spend?? You buying new or secondhand??

    What about Cervelo? They might not be a name like De Rosa, or Colnago or Wilier, but they seem to make very good frames.

    In the end when you are paying so much, the technical differences are very slight (apart from fit - some may fit better than others and therefore feel better), only the aesthetics are truly different.
    I like bikes...

    Another vote for the Pinarello Prince. Awesome bike.

    Izoard? If you can afford to stretch to an Idol doesn't that open up the Le Roi and Cento?
