Considering 2 bikes at the moment for commuter use, on and off road, both with disk brakes and very similar geometry. I've narrowed it down to the following issues and would be interested in your thoughts or preferences?
+ Super comfy, great fit, looks good.
- Heavy, sluggish, bit slow on the off.
+ Reasonable light, taper head tube, pretty good fit. Likely more off road orientated.
- Rides like a lump of wood, not as nice in aesthetically.
Down to cost, size and availability (also being a fussy so and so) it's a question of one or the other for me?
Will i hate riding home tired after a long day on a heavy bike?
Will i detest the dead, wooden feel of the alu frame?
