My next bike is going to be disc brake and am looking for opinions and hopefully experience from those who may own some of these bikes. I currently ride a 2013 SuperSix Evo (non-himod). For the frame my list of priorities (in order) are: weight, comfort, and stiffness. Groupset will either be Dura-Ace Di2 or Sram Etap.
Here is my list so far:
Focus Izalco Max Disc
-Lightest disc road frameset I can find so far. The team version looks really nice. Seems to get good reviews but not sure about the stiffness.
Cannondale SuperSix Evo Disc
-I've read the comfort aspect of the frame has only improved in the latest iteration.
Canyon Ultimate CF SLC Disc
-Not available in the US until late summer/fall so most likely beyond the timeframe I'm looking to buy.
Giant TCR Advanced SL
-I test rode the non-isp version for a week. I was surprised how harsh riding it was (compared to my SS).
Specialized S-Works Tarmac Disc
-Haven't considered this too much, proprietary rear wheel is a bummer.
What other bikes would you toss into the mix?
Aero is beneficial but not a priority for me. I put quite a few miles on my SuperSix and hope to do the same with this next bike.
I'm riding a 2016 Focus Izalco Disc, the blue Dura Ace/FSA bike.
Really enjoying it.
Weight was initially 7.5kg minus pedals, I've "added lightness", no massive cost so far and it's 7.3kg including pedals.
Rides well, I prefer it to my last bike a BMC TMR I used to ride,
It's on a par with the best bike I've owned, Scott Foil...maybe I've just not ridden enough bikes?
I ticks all the boxes
One of the Best points is the RAT through axles...so simple and easy to change a wheel...brakes always in line
