Frame vs Frame - Alpha Gold Aluminum vs QUICK CX , OPTIMIZED 6061 ALLOY SAVE
The two bikes im looking at are Trek 8.4 DS and the Cannondale Quick CX-3
8.4 DS - Trek Bicycle
QUICK CX 3 - Recreation - Recreation & Urban - Bikes - 2013 - - -<<<
Cannondale Quick CX 3 Bike - 2013 at REI.com
and I guess as I'm writing this I think I found out that the frames are the same material or something.
I know, and correct me if I'm wrong, that the 8.4 is a better bike. Is there any regards that makes Cx3 better. What really is getting my attention is Cannondale's SAVE technology. I have no idea if it REALLY makes a difference.
I'm coming from a Trek 3700 Disc (2011) Size 22.5
I haven't gone to the bike shop yet because they do not have them in stock, it has to be specially ordered. I would assume that I would like the feeling on 8.4DS..but yea..
Frame material difference = marketing. No real difference. May be some difference between them in design; one made to have more flex in seatstays, etc. you'd need to ride both for quite a while to really know. Plus, they both look like cross bikes but I definitely could be wrong as I've not been in the market for an entry level bike in a long time.
