Not that the wife has agreed to n+1, but an interesting discussion nonetheless, if only theoretical for the moment. So, which would you choose - Specialized Tarmac SL7 or Canyon Aeroad - and why? I would be coming from a 2010 Motobecane Immortal Pro with Ultegra mechanical groupset and basic wheels. The Motobecane has been great for me as my first road bike and I’m primarily interested in longer rides like Fondos and Centuries. Budget would be $5k (at most).
