It seems like the Veloce has a better parts spec, but the Giro might be a better frame. The Veloce is the SL3 aluminum that is the same as Bianchi's reparto corse frames, while the Giro is a technically more innovative design with the carbon stays. I'll probably have whichever one I get for a long time (had my last road bike for 10 years), and they both cost the same. I'd definitely swap out the wheels on the Giro, and probably on the Veloce, too, but not immediately.

I'd appreciate input, especially from those who have ridden them.
