Buying new road bike Trek with Sora vs Pinnacle with 105


I stopped cycling 6 years ago due to medical issues and am now able time return to cycling.

I’ve narrowed new bike choice to a Trek Domaine 3 with sora group set or Pinnacle Laterite 3 with 105 group set.

Am I better going with the 105 group set?

    Which is the more comfortable bike? Groupsets can be changed
  • Think about the whole package and geometry, personally I find Pinnacle being a shop brand is far better value as basically the retailer goes directly to the factory for its bikes where as Trek has a far more costly logistics model but at the end of the day if the Trek has a better geometry for you then it could make more sense.
