Canyon every time as the Giant looks like something out of the 90s.

I know its all 'relative' but how unforgiving and stiff are these bikes? Are the Pinarello GANs/F8 even worst? 'worst' is probably the wrong word for it, stiffer?? Usually it means better transfer of power, stable...right?, but geometry wise...aggressive on wrist and back?

My current bike is a Diverge DSW, technically a cyclocross non carbon bike...running 28mm conti 4 season at 90psi.

The F8 is not harsh at all, and in my opinion has better ride quality than my Canyon ULT CF SLX, regarding true ride quality, ridden back to back.

Canyon....only because they look good, and you can't get them around here.

I've had a few of both and sold the giants but still have the canyons. Giants are well made and solid though
Stiff, Light, Aero - Pick Three!! :thumbup:
