Artur_Portugal Posted May 7, 2020 Share Posted May 7, 2020 (edited) Hello, I need some advice on choosing new bike... I currently have Btwin ultra AF 920 (aluminium frame, ultrega r8000 and Prime Carbon 38mm with tubless tires, size XL) The idea is to up grade the frame. The frames only are expensive so I will buy new bike with 105 shimano and swap the groupset, brakes and the wheels, and sell btwin. I'm between the Cannondale Caad 13, 2019 model (shimano 105, rim brake, size 58) or Focus Izalco Race 9.7 2020 (rim brake, shimano 105, size 60) ... The price's are about the same (both with very GOOD discount).. My main doubt is the diference on riding caad and izalco race, carbon vs aluminium... all review i saw mention the caad 13 is the best aluminium bike and better than entry level carbon... Is there anyone that has ridden both bikes? The Caad 13 takes advantage in braking, it has direct mount front and rear and tire clearence. The Focus wins in the weight... I thank you for your opinions. Edited May 7, 2020 by Artur_Portugal Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
