I'm stuck. I'm torn between two bikes. I am making my first tri bike purchase in the next week but can't decide which bike is a better deal. The first bike is the 2006 Cervelo Dual with Dura Ace shifters and derailleurs, Ultegra chain and cassette, FSA Gossamer MegaExo cranks, and Velo Max vista wheels. Cost is $1900.
The second bike is a 2004 Guru CronAlu leftover. It comes with full Ultegra Components, and Ritchey Pro DS wheels. Cost is $2100.
Can anyone tell me what the better deal is? Both bikes pretty much ride the same to me. I think the Guru is a much better frame, but is it worth the extra $200 bucks without the Dura Ace Components? I also heard that the Dual frame is made in Taiwan. Is this True?
