    going carbon, looking at 3 or 4 new frame 2013, all local

    First, cervelo r3 105, look good, but have a history of crack bb. true for 2013?

    2:, giant defy advanced 1, look is ok, price is ok, bike of the year?

    3 less know, devinci leo, solide , less plush, Could go with the leo sl ultegra, but it is at the limite of my budget.

    4 maybe cannondall synapse 105, good price, but not what i was looking for.

    I did look at specialized, trek, look, but price was more, much more then my budget.

    I am not racing, but i do groupe ride, some of them very hard for me, and lots of solo ride, from 60 to 120 km, speed is about 27 to 34 km/h.

    Right now , i have a specialized sector 2010, 52, lots of mod. the thing is the bike is on the limite size wise, my saddle is all the way frw. smaller size would be better.

    Just a few weeks ago, I test rode the Defy Adv 1. I found it to be quick, reponsive, and comfortable. It felt better than both the Domane 4.5 and the Roubaix Comp. However, now I'm beginning to lean towards Ti.

    The giant is a good bike for the price, and the wheels are above most of the other from what i saw. The fit may be more to my liking, the 530 top tube is more for me for sure.

    The cervelo is more a "nice looking bike" type of felling. But, again according to the chart, it would make a perfect fit. Good thing i can still use the thinking part of my brain. Bad history for cervelo is making me very caution.
