There is a screaming deal on a vortex and an ultimate right now at Colorado cyclist.

My problem is whether to go for the vortex or the ultimate? Which one should I choose and what are their respective handling characteristics?

Thanks.

The Vortex is more of a lighter, climbing, all in the day ride. The Ultimate has shorter chainstays and is more of a crit, and sprint bike,stiffer ride. Not as comfortable as the Vortex, but could still ride on longer rides. In a nutshell that's the more noticeable differences.

Hello. I'd love to get opinions on whether or not the palmares is worth the upgrade from the vortex. Strengths and weaknesses would be great to know. Thanks! -Kelly
