Kuota vs Giant vs Merida

Postby PerthNewbie » Sat Nov 10, 2012 10:44 pm

Hey guys, I have finally narrowed down my search for a new bike to a few options.
The bikes/deals I have being presented are;
Kuota Kharma, 105, $1995
Merida Scultura 905, Ultegra, nice componentry, $1999
Giant TCR Advanced 3, 105, $1900
Is there anything I should specific to any of these bikes? They all ride nicely and are aesthetically pleasing but I can't decide =/
Thanks!

If they all ride nicely, then maybe go for the Ultegra since its an 'upgrade'

Thats if things like frame feel the same.

Or go with the frame that you think you'll keep the longest, i.e. most bling, lightest or looks nicest

FWIW I think (by looking at the pictures :lol: ) the giant is the lightest and the kuota is the most aero

Beware with the Merida thinking you'll get nicer components, the Giant has a full 105 kit while the Merida seems to be a mish mash groupset, nothing wrong with either, but some people like matching componentry

I got the Kuota! I like the frame and geometry and it is definitely very aero!
I figure I can upgrade components once some more money comes in =)
Thanks for the advice.
Will post pics soon.
