Bike advice: Felt B16 or Cube Aerium Pro ?
First post on the forum, hoping for some advice.
Am considering an entry level tri bike on the companies cycle scheme.
Ive narrowed my selection down to two bikes and I would appreciate any advice on which 'may' be the best option.
Ive added a link to the spec of each bike.
1, 2015 Felt B16 (Carbon).
2, 2015 Cube Aerium Pro (alu)
- Frame on the Felt is probably better (same mould as higher spec bikes just lower spec carbon) so more upgradeable.
- Higher spec components on the Cube
- Cube more versatile (can use as normal road bike)
- Weights are almost identical (9.24/9.21KG)
Ive had a quick test ride on the Felt and initial thoughts were good even without proper fitting. I am planning on trying the Cube at another shop tomorrow.
I like the idea of the cube being almost a 'half way house' between road and tri as it means the bike would get more use but Im worried i'll be left regretting not going full tri spec. That said I doubt there would be much between the two in terms of performance.
For what its worth Ive sourced both bikes at a good price with the Cube coming up £50 cheaper than the Felt.
Any opinions to help my decision would be appreciated.
