Dear Editor, I'm considering buying a racing bike aluminum, finally ... Aluminium for the budget of 2000 € and why would a bike dressed discreetly, with the groupset at least Ultegra or Force and good wheels. Because aluminum with steel and titanium we would go out and the carbon price would be too much entry level (...).

The key issue is the setting that should be very comfortable. For now I'll hit the Cannondale Caad10 and BMC GF02. I kindly ask your opinion and if you have other models to report me, and also a suggestion on tubeless. Thank you and congratulations for the web-site! Signed letter


Thanks for the compliments. You have selected two excellent bike, albeit different. The Cannondale Caad10 is lightweight, stiff and responsive, with excellent overall performance, you can not say that it is the ultimate in comfort, though better than many carbon frames. The BMC GF02 is a frame slightly heavier, but just as hard, has the advantage of a high level of comfort, far higher than many carbon frames. It has a high stability and steering precision. Globally are two very good bike, but for comfort wins quietly BMC GF02 which also has a better assembly and homogeneous in its quality. Cannondale has a slight advantage in absolute overall performance. The tubeless allow  greater driving safety, with the liquid anti-puncture, and excellent performance. The Schwalbe Ultremo ZX tubeless are excellent, in union with wheels Shimano, DT Swiss or Fulcrum.
