    Limited edition obviously.
  • I was looking at the different alloy frame treatments also.


    I've just got back from looking at both bikes in the store, they are pretty much the exact same just with different frames and saddles.

    Probably go for the Limited Edition :). Thanks.

    ive run a carrera for 5 years now demoted to winter bike, its solid and durable. no complaints at all for the money. the spec isnt much different from the giant either. for the money they are good. the virtuoso has a lighter grade alloy than the tdf so possibly lighter.the 36 spoke wheels will be strong as well. on the flat theres not a massive difference from my carbon bike.

    Thinking of buying a virtuoso for a winter bike... seems to be liked by most reviews I've read!
