    suggestion for a new bike

    Hello to all,
    I'm on the market for a new bike and I'd like some advice from you.
    These are more or less the characteristics I'm looking for:
    - all-round frame, with good climbing and descent skills
    - effective (non UCI) tires clearance up to 28/30mm measured
    - rim brakes, I would really appreciate the direct mount brakes
    - relatively comfortable, also oriented to outputs + 150km


    For now I'm oriented to these models:
    - Bianchi Specialissima, I tried it, it's really remarkable
    - Orbea Orca OMR, I don't know nothing about the ride quality
    - BMC Teammachine SLR01, tires clearance?

    Thank you in advance

    You should also ad a Trek domane to you list to test ride.

    unfortunately all the Trek have the seat tube angle not suitable for me, I need an seat tube angle of 73.5 max, but the best is 73

    I think Cervelo uses 73 STA on every frame and every size. Except for TT I'd imagine.

    Thrue, but what about tyre clearance?

    Scott Addict should check a lot of those boxes.

    I bet you'd love the Bianchi... but anyway asking what bike you should get from Internet strangers is going to get you a ton of random answers. In the end, try some bikes, get the one you like. There are usually good deals somewhere so I'd never pay full price, but then again if you keep waiting forever you aren't riding yet.

    A word on Scott, they seem to love to confuse their customers with changing product names.

    2018:
    Aero: Foil
    Race/All-around: Addict RC
    Endurance: Addict

    ~2014-2017:
    Aero: Foil
    Race/All-around: Addict
    Endurance: Solace

    You can pretty much do anything on any of their frames, though, there are clearly geometry and design differences but also some marketing fluff. A couple years ago somebody won Paris-Roubaix on a Foil...

    Edit: And then to confuse things even more, there is the Addict Gravel...

    I think that Cervelo R5 have a good chance to be my next bike, perfect geometry, good tyre clearance, amazing ride quality.

    That could be an excellent choice (depending on fit). I had an R3 back in 2012 or so and liked it a lot.
