Hi all

Would really appreciate some advice. A choice between two bikes - GT Tachyon 2.0 or Cannondale Quick 2 sl, both 2012 models.
The bike will be for 90% road use and 10% very light track/cycle paths type things..I can get them for much the same price, the Cannondale around £40 or so more...Would I just be paying for the name with cannondale?? Does anyone have any experience of with the GT Tachyon 2.0?
Thanks in advance

    I'd go for the GT. There really is very little in it. The Cannondale has slightly lighter wheels (and that's nice on the road), but they're likely to be low-spec things that simply won't last as long as the ones on the GT without going out of true.

    Other than that, they're very close in spec. The GT has got newer model shifters...
    Sometimes parts break. Sometimes you crash. Sometimes it’s your fault.
  • Thanks Davis - Being a newbie, trying to evaluate the merits and compare components is very tricky..Heading towards a GT then :):)
