I just cant decide which to have between the 3, I have read alot of reviews and searched the most of google's database, but am still stuck
I am 5"10 , weighs a shy 85kgs and have owned a trek 6.5 (sold), cervelo s3 and a clx 3.0 . I am pretty flexible on the bike itself. What I am after is stiffness and comfort.
My clx3.0 is just simply a joy to ride, its comfortable yet stiff enough for me, setup is a 50s sizing with a 130mm whereas my s3 itself, is such a pure race machine! it just wants me to go harder everytime its a sz 54 with 120mm stem. both have roughly between 69.5 to 70.5 from bb to saddle height ( sorry , i cant remember, but the clx3.0 has the lower of 2 measurements) The trek I sold prior to purchasing my s3, and oh what a difference there was, the trek felt noodly and not as responsive compared to my s3. It might be psychological, but its one of those things ya know My roads are mostly flat but do have some nice inclines. What I would be after is something snappy, good power transfer , and able to provide something not too harsh of a ride
I am simply stuck, I can get very good deals on both bikes, but am just lost at choice ! the c59 is with the colour scheme as shown below. With the oltre/oltre XR, I am after the celeset colour scheme.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I run campag but both bikes are with DA, I will only have the c59 most likely for a test ride before I purchase, but both bikes will be changed to Campag SR11, and weight weenied as much as possible
Thanks again people, hoping for those who have the opportunity to ride both can give some feedback
Now my problem is.. Wheels?
I do not know if its just me, but I prefer my shamals over my mavic ksyrium sl's. its like 2 totally different rides. I have been offered either bora ultra 2s or Mavic R-Sys SLR Clincher.
I have researched extensively and do know it comes down to tubular vs clincher , ride quality, etc etc. In all honesty, are the bora ultra 2's much better than R-Sys slrs ?

If budget is an issue Bora Ones and Zondas, if not go for BU2s and neutron ultras
Stiff, Light, Aero - Pick Three!!
r sys really nice as well,i now have mavic cosmic carbone slr best wheels i have had imo as i want to run clincher.
Anyone need a bora spoke kit i have one for sale brand new.
