Ok Bike junkies...I need a little advice.....I've found two great deals on a road bike (I'm new to road biking but haev been mtn for awhile).

Bike #1 - Giant TCR2 - full 105 - $1,700 CAN
Bike # 2 - Aquila Prima - full 105 with carbon seatstays - $1,800 CAN

Both bikes are the comapct size and have the same stuff other than the carbon seatstays.

Let the comments begin.

Don't worry about brand or how it "rides" how you fit on the bike is so much more important. I'm new to road bikes as well (came from the mt. bike side) i just bought a new road bike last friday, i test rode a bunch of different bikes including a Giant TCR1. I finally found a shop that was willing to honestly "fit a bike to me not just sell me what they had in stock. When i rode the bike i ended up buying i knew it was the right one, it could have been my least favorite color or not the exactly what i had originally been looking for and i still would have bought it because i am totally comfortable and confident on the bike. good luck
