Cannondale Caad 4 or Giant TCR(3 posts)

Cannondale Caad 4 or Giant TCRMart
Jul 6, 2001 9:03 AM
I am going to buy either one in the next few days. I was set on a Giant but have seen a Cannondale R600 in a sale. I live in the UK and have heard that there is a problem with the Cannondale importers but I get different answers from those trying to sell me a Cannondale and those who want to sell me something else - can you really trust someone who wants to sell you something - I think not. Any views as to which is the better bike or should I say frame and any knowledge as to the suspected import problems.

I suspect that the problem in the UK is not the importers but Cannondale themselves. I love Cannondale I ride a new CAAD 6 myself. I also work in a shop that sells Cannondale along with others. Cannondale has always, in my 4 1/2 years at the shop, always been hit and miss with their avaliabilityl. I would go ahead and get a Cannondale and get a CAAD 6 while your at it.

I just got a giant TCR 1 frame and it's quite a ride. have no experience with cannondales but from what i heard earlier caads were quite harsh, not so with the giant tcr, coming from a columbus steel bike i think its got the same ride quality with the added bonus of light weight, 2.2lbs on a medium size. if weight is your prime consideration then go for the TCRs.
