|can anyone explain what are the different characteristics between the above frame?
how is the ride quality between both frame? is the giant harsher due to its alu frame?

|flavor characteristics between a steak and a hamburger...?
both are great.. but very different depending on your tase buds. the merckx sc is is one of those frames where everything is right... but i wouldnt call it a crit bike even though its great for that... it is a bike that IMO is dialed in.. its a real racing bike.. very special..
the giant is a great kind of throw away crit rig...
it does what it does .. and so there is a sharpness about that.
but i dont think there is a choice between the two..
and i'll bet of you get a test ride you will know exactly what i mean...
the answer is both a great.. but very different in detail.
