    G'day.

    Just wondering what everyone thinks, what is the best road bike that comes out of the factory?

    I don't mean a bike which you've bought and then added certain parts to it. Only bikes which have come straight out of the box.

    Giant TCR Zero? Cannondale R5000? What else?

    I personally like the TCR Zero, but I have a bias for Giant frames.

    I haven't ridden any, but the GIants get my vote based solely on price and spec.

    Only two in it for me:

    Litspeed Ultimate (Robbie Mcewens sprint bike of choice)

    Cannondale R500Si (must be the new CAAD7 design - new lighter aluminium developed with Alcoa and a tube set that's been bent, moulded, tweaked and profiled in every square millimetre)

    I'll have the LiteSpeed Vortex thanks. Apparently slightly stiffer rear triangle while being just as comfortable as the Ultimate due to the curved seat stays.
