Questions about purchasing bicycles and parts
Apart from the Cube for the ride, I'd go the Giant for Di2. Giant put together a very good bike. They've largely been termed the Toyota of Bike manufacturers.
that's the problem with Giant. excellent value for money, but is there anything wrong with wanting something a bit different to what everyone else is riding?
Yeah giant are great - I really enjoy my TCR. Sometimes the paint can be a bit boring
They'll all ride very well. Be different get the CUBE. Every sheep has a Merida, Giant....
Would this BMC weigh into your choices also?

I'd actually be really interested in how a well sorted Boutique brand would fair against a specc'd up large manufacturer. In the other words, would a 105-based BMC frame go well against an Ultegra-based 905.
that BMC is 51cm only. Seems cheap though, if you're lucky enough to fit it.

I just pulled the trigger on 2012 Cube GTC Pro - i'll let ya know how it goes once I get some miles up if ya want - PM me
Good Choice Buddy, ride is beautiful on the cube.
IMO it looks like you've done your homework as these are all excellent bikes and difficult to fault at there price range. Between these three bikes I feel it really should be a personal choice what draws you to the bike the most from the style, the ride and if your a bit of a poser perhaps brand name is your thing?
Personally I ride a Merida 905 Comp I've been riding it for about 4 months now and feel very comfortable on it, I find I can just get in the zone on this bike and really enjoy the ride.
Of course this is just my opinion based on my choices which suited me, bikes are really a personal item and the three choices you are looking at are solid options so very interested to hear what you decide on.
Where are you based?
