New Road Bike - Mid Level

Postby Dr.Nate » Sat Mar 31, 2012 6:28 pm

So my house got broken into and my Giant Defy Carbon Composite got stolen!

So annoyed......

But have managed to get it all back on an insurance claim and was thinking of upgrading... I ride group rides on the weekends with some 80km + rides.

Was looking at a couple of options:

1. Colnago CLX 3.0 Ultegra or Di2
2. Pinarello FP Quattro
3.Pinarello Rokh
4. Trek 5.2 Madone

Any thoughts ? Anyone have any experience with these machines? Is Di2 on the Colnago worth it ??

I dont know much about these bikes but i think they all would be an ultegra or equivelant groupset.

Thanks

My boss opted for a Wilier Gran Turismo over the Colnago CLX 3 on the basis of the GT boasting more relaxed geometry. The GT comes with Ultegra Di2 as an option but is perhaps a bridge too far cost wise?

So I have decided on the Colnago CLX 3.0 with Ultegra Di2,

Lets hope it all I expect it to be! The Willier with Di2 was working out to be about $1000 more.... and I figured there cant be much in it in that range.

Welcome to the Colnago ranks!!

Post up some thoughts/pics after you have given the CLX 3.0 a good shake down........ :)

Di2 or no Di2, buy the bike you most feel comfortable on, regardless of the components.
If the bike you happen to like the most has Di2, thats an added bonus.
