Which Bike - Felt V Cannondale V Giant

Ready to spend the cash in a winter sale and now have big dilemma!

I have done some hunting and these bikes are on offer at reputable companies, the nearest though is about 60- miles away.

I know that all will be a can't fail choice, but I am in my first Ironman this year and also want to do well in a lot of local TT's.

Competed 2 years at Olympic distance on a road bike.

Felt B2 - £1799.99 (top end of my reach money wise)

Giant Trinity Alliance zero - £995

Cannondale Ironman 2 (2006) - £1400

Brand New Planet X - £1000+

Opinions welcome

Happy New Year

    Okay Okay, I really would value an opinion from someone?

    More searching and the options now are:

    Felt B2 £1799.99

    Scott Plasma Pro £1,699.99 (or £2k for 2008 model)

    Its a lot of money and I want to benefit from the end of season sales.

    I could go for the basic Planet X with a good pair of wheels for c £1,500

    Thoughts please?

    My money woudl go with the plannet X with carbon wheels - You will be faster on these.

    You need some extra wheels for trainging on though

    Went for the Scott Plasma - only tested in the car park at the bike shop but it flies.

    I thought it would be easier to upgrade the wheels later and trust that Scott don't let me down with the Mavics it comes with.

    You never know I may find some money before summer to upgrade?
