    Which Bike

    Just wondering which bike to possibly buy. The 2018 Pinarello Gan S with Ultegra or the 2018 Tarmac Expert with DA, They're both on sale and I know I need to ride each one, if I can find them at a local store. Any opinions on either one would be appreciated. I'm coming from a 2003 Trek 5500 and I'm sure they'll be a big difference with either one.

    The red one as it will be faster.

    No, seriously, ride them both and buy the one that you like the feel of better and the one that fits you better.

    What people are trying to say is that they are both quality bikes, similar even. So one really isnít objectively better than the other. Itís even tough to say DA is significantly better than Ultegra, etc. You really do have to try them and decide which one YOU like better. Thatís all that really matters anyway.

    I like Tarmacs, but other guys swear by Pinarello. Reading reviews will help, but those are just someone elseís opinion too. All of this stuff is mostly subjective in the end so there is no universally accepted right answer to questions like this fortunately/unfortunately. Thatís a good thing, in my opinion, because it means you just go with what you decide you like more. #freedom #doyoubro

    Sometimes some cycling websites do bike tests where they compare different models. Those can be more helpful than a standard review to an extent. Nothing beats a good test ride back to back for me though. You do have two good options there in my opinion fwiw.
