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?

thanks

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...

luck..
the answer is both a great.. but very different in detail.
