I wonder too ;-). To be honest I love to ride a bike that I know well and feel comfortable with for a long time, but about 4 and half years ago, I had a very big injury which kept me away from bikes for nearly 3 years, so when I came back I decided not just to enjoy the riding but also the playing around with new bikes, trying new things. I am in the lucky position to be able to afford this approach - but I take nothing for granted...

Currently mostly I use the look 695 which is in std rigidity, so quite comfortable. To get back on the TT bike - I have been using the Wilier, but it is still quite aggressive to my shoulder, thus the high stack on the Giant. The BMC is getting new cranks.

The rest of the bikes get their work out too - not my MTBs (those in the winter) - but the Look gets the current mileage. Am waiting to get my IF back and will probably do 3 or 4 days in Mallorca with it.

Choices :-)

The Wilier TT bike is just absolutely gorgeous!!! I've never seen a more aggressive yet beautiful bicycle.

:shock:
Long live the horizontal top tube, standard crankset, and Italian threaded bottom bracket.

I really love those 695 frames, and the components look great on it. The Scott also looks great with those Corimas. I have always wanted two tt bikes, you beat me to it!
