Hi, new to this forum and was wondering if anyone has heard of these bikes? Got the choice between the 2, both 2nd hand but immaculate. Any help much appreciated as i'm a bit of a novice!

Viner Pro Team eom with carbon forks and carbon rear stays
ITM bars and stem
Massi carbon seatpost
Specialized body geometry slim saddle
Reynolds Alta Race wheelset
Continental GP4000 tyres
Specialits TA chainset (triple superlight)
Campag carbon chorus shifters
Centaur brakes, rear mech and front mech


Pro Race Dione frame, carbon forks and rear stays
ITM carbon bars and stem
Prorace carbon seatpost
Selle Italia titanium flite saddle
Gipiemme Gracal parade wheelset
Vredestein tyres
Ultegra triple chainset
Ultegra front/rear mech and brakes


Think they're both about 2 years old but not sure.

    Viner are well respected Italian manufacturer, regarly get good write ups, Prorace I think may be Probikekit own branded frames from a few years ago.

    Of the two I'd go for the Viner, but that said they both seem a little overpriced.
    Carlsberg don't make cycle clothing, but if they did it would probably still not be as good as Assos

    Viner. EOM is highly rated, and the Campag bits are nice. Not sure about carbon stays though, since I've never ridden a bike with them.
