I have a bit of a lower back problem and want i bike fittet for me.
I'm not a hardcore racer and will be using the bike for everything in between 60-200km+ rides.
So I need something cozy but still fun to ride.
I have arround 4.000€ to spend on one of the three above.
All with Ultegra DI2.
All of them 2012 machines.

Pleas let me know you think.

Daniel

None of those bikes are "cozy". You should look for something more upright like a Roubaix or CR1.

Out of the ones you mentioned the BMC SLR01 would be the most comfortable. I have read a lot of good things about the TCC (Tuned Compliance Concept) that BMC uses. I would also consider some offerings from Specialized or even Cervelo if they are available to you. I have ridden their discontinued now RS model for some time and it is by far the most comfortable and compliant bike I have ever ridden. I've ridden a 104 mile granfondo on it with 11,500ft of climbing and did not feel beat up.

Gf01...

Tar from the list above, hands down. But the gfo1 or trek domane or Parlee z5 in tall geo would be my comfort bike choices

I'll happily take the Storck off your hands if it's not to your liking ;)

Hi,

I happened to own both the BMC and Giant TCR, but never tried the Venge. If I have to choose between BMC and Giant for comfort, I would say the BMC is way more compliant than Giant.
