I have narrow my search down to two bikes. I have been on both and they fit very similar. The Motobecane is equiped pretty well including components and rims, it is also very light.
The Kestrel is still equipted well, but appears just a notch below. The Kestrel may make up for this with aerodynamics. I plan to use either for regular 20-40 mile training rides and the occasional triathalon. At this time I am a mountain biker ridding a Kona Columbus tube steel bike.
I could care less about brand I just want to be sure I go with the better option of these two. My budget is capped at $2k including tax/shipping. If I went with any of the name brands I would be in a aluminum with carbon forks and 105 components.
Here are the links below with the descriptions/specs.
Please help...Much appreciated!
