Currently I am in the midst of buying a new bike. My choice is between Cervelo S3 & Giant Propel Advanced Pro 2. The criteria I look for in the bike is 1. Speed & 2. Comfort. All comments are welcome.

Thanks in advance

    The one you like the look of best. Because the difference between them in terms of 'speed' will be the square root of censored all.

    Pretty much what Nap D said. the propel's brakes might be something to be aware of. if they aren't set up right they are absolute rubbish. they also rub broader rims, such as zipps or heds unless you get them nailed. one of my clubmates went up ditchling beacon with his rear brake grabbing... not good...

    Based on your criteria, the S3.

    However you want to really consider a wider pool of aero bikes, including:

    - S5
    - new Scott Foil
    - Canyon aero thingy
    - Look (I have the 695 aerolight, which is fab and quite fast enough for me)
    - Venge

    Depends on budget, heart etc.
    Commute: Langster -Singlecross - Brompton S2-LX

    Road: 95 Trek 5500 -Look 695 Aerolight eTap - Boardman TTe eTap

    Offroad: Pace RC200 - Dawes Kickback 2 tandem - Tricross - Boardman CXR9.8 - Ridley x-fire
