About to purchase a road bike to get into the road scene and are down to a short list of 3.

1. Giant TCR2
2. Specialized Allex Elite
3. Guru Flite (made here at home - Canada)

All three bikes have about the same stuff (full 105, alum, carbon fork)and are around $2,000 Can $'s. The major differences are that the Giant as all know comes in the limited sizes whereas the other two come in regular sizes. They are all compact type frames. I'm leaning towards the Guru Flite as of this moment but figured it was worth throwing it out to the crowd.

Thanks in advance.

If you've ridden them all already, and you're leaning toward the Guru, get the Guru. In addition to getting a bike you want, you'll get a bit of boutique appeal as compared with a mass brand like Giant or Specialized. The Gurus look really nice, by the way. Enjoy
