I’m hoping I can get a little advice here. I’m currently torn between my current bike (Canyon Aeroad CF SLX disc) and a frame I’ve just ordered (Allez Sprint disc).
Long story short I was hit by a car last year and totaled my old Aeroad and once I received the insurance payout I replaced it but sized down as I got an extremely good offer on a virtually brand new (secondhand) bike. Although I love the bike and can’t really fault it, I had a few fit issues from the new size, albeit mostly rectified now, I still see it more as a racing tool rather than something that excites me.
I’ve got a busy race season ahead of crits and mostly flat road races and i’m confident either bike would be well suited to this. Keeping ‘only race what you can afford to replace’ in mind, what would you do?
Move the hydro Dura ace groupset and wheels from my aeroad to the Allez sprint frame? (and have a nice chunk of cash left over from the sale of the Canyon frame)
Stick with the aeroad?
