Chose the bike that's best for you, not what people on the internet voted for.

Thanks, I really am stuck to your saying, I know not every bike suits everyone, but its one of those things I would love to get my things short listed to. I would not have an opportunity to test ride them all , especially being a rotational shift worker. More importantly, most shops here do not allow me to test ride the bikes, and will only arrive after putting down a firm deposit, meaning its mine to be dealth with be it I love or I simply do not adore the ride quality. But having it short listed with pro's/con's will make my life alot easier . The poll consists of bikes I would like to have/choose for addition to my own stable. Any of them if be it fitting, will be my new bike :thumbup:

The S5 is definitely the most aero bike in this list. If it's all about speed on the flats, that'd be the go to for me


I'd like to agree, but the BMC TMR01 looks fast and I have not seen any aero data for this bike anywhere.

It would be interesting too. Why doesnt BMC provide any data? :noidea:

Wait and get the updated R5 aero frame set based on the RCa mold coming out soon. Having played around w the RCa the past couple weeks getting the reasonably priced R5 Cervelo in its new "aero" form, should be fantastic and will no doubt be destined for multiple awards in 2014 etc.

How aero (or not) is the old carbon Soloist? I just bought one.

I'd wager more aero than most of whats being called "aero" nowadays, like the new Trek, BMC and Foil; and really its the same as the S2 in shape and that has proven itself in many aero tests. There is little substitute for thin, airfoil shaped tubes when you want a truly aero bike.

The poll is presumably taken with the assumption that all will fit fine, but they are all very different bikes fit wise. The RB1000 will look aweful unless you have a huge drop. So I'd narrow the list by ruling out those that won't fit you well.

Madone got my vote thanks to the different head tube lengths offered and Kamm design, a clever way to combine comfort with aero.

That one would be a real killer providing it comes with a pleasing paintjob.

Does anyone else think it's a little funny that the very company who are credited with inventing the road compact, and pimped the virtues for so long, have brought out a frame with a horizontal top tube (coz it's apparently more aero)? :thumbup:

I'm actually not sure whether top tube shaping makes a difference - the Venge has a sloping one instead. Anyway, this is Giant's first aero bike, and all their other compact frames weren't touted to give aero advantages.
