    Hey Everyone,

    I'm looking to buy a bike in the £2k ball park mainly for triathlons, but also for the occasional sportive.

    Based on wanting a carbon frame and Shimano Ultegra or SRAM Force groupset I've narrowed my search down to the Boardman Air 9.0 - http://www.boardmanbikes.com/road/air90.html

    and the Kuota Kharma Evo - http://www.bike-science.com/our-bikes-and-frames/kuota-bikes/kharma-evo-road/2013-kuota-kharma-evo-road-bike-shimano-ultegra-2-p-1736.html

    The spec seems pretty similar across the two bikes and I've been riding a Boardman Comp Road bike for 3 years so I fully trust Boardman, but the Kuota is just achingly beautiful and the more vertical seat tube with wheel cut out screams "I'M AERODYNAMIC AND FAST".

    I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts on groupsets as well as bike choice here.

    Happy Cycling!

    Both very nice bikes, are you able to test ride both?

    I wouldn't mind buying a Giant Propel or Boardman later in the year
