endurance bike recs/thoughts?
Thinking about selling my current road bike (Cervelo R3) to get something with a bit more tire clearance and disc brakes. I'd like to generally ride 28s, but have the option to go up to 30-32. I'd be ok with a more traditional race geometry, but I think to get that clearance I'll be looking at endurance frames. Which is fine - I'm old and slow, and am more likely to do gran fondos than road races.
I'm leaning towards the Canyon Endurace SL - anyone have any experience or otherwise want to weigh in? Other possibilities I think are the Cervelo C3 (hey, I can still use this BBRight crap I've accumulated), Canondale Synapse (seems to hit most marks but the teeny seatpost seems weird), Argon Krypton (CS? GF? they've got to have a gif that explains their lines), maybe a Giant Defy. The new Tarmac disc is dreamy but expensive AF.
