I've been offered a cento one ( not sr ) with ultegra di2. I've had my eye on an aeroad with same ultegra di2. Has anyone ridden both? Any ideas on the difference? I was set on the canyon but saw one last week and was not that impressed with the finish on it? For the money would have thought better. I had a wilier and loved the ride. Got an addict RC at the mo with dura ace di2 but just fancy a change. Really stuck now what to go for. Want to stick with ultegra di2 as its no different from my dura ace di2 just cheaper to maintain with spares all the time.
Any thoughts? Liking the cervelo s5 too but seeing as its not populate here I will whisper that. Some great 2012 offers about at the mo and am itching to push the button on something? So undecided. I will keep the addict for the moment n need to pass it for winter duties as its too nice and here in Mallorca if it rains I tend not to go out as it don't ritual often so don't need a winter bike as such.

    The Cento Uno is a modern classic. While I'm in no doubt that the Aeroad is a quality ride the Wilier is an epic bike. I thought about moving on from mine last Autumn but had a 'what the fuxk are you thinking about?' moment and now I know I could never part with it. It's an incredible frame.

    just got back on my original Cento after two months - it is so silky smooth and comfortable - you could ride it all day,, and its still a race frame ! to the OP - why are you even thinking about this decision?

    So you've not actually ridden the Canyon for a long period yet, you've just bought one?

    meh

    The distributors (ATB) virtually sent me the whole odds and ends kit out to help me convert mine from Di2 to cabled system and were always on hand to answer every question and query.

    Also, the ride is sublime and the quality of the carbon is as good as it gets. Stuff like the above, statements made with no evidence and no reasons to support, is just blather.

    I have no idea what a centro is.
