Time RXR Ulteam vs Carvélo Soloist S3

Hi everyone, first post here.

I have an "old" Look 381 frame that so far lasted over 60000 Km. Ufortunatelly it is starting to show some signs of wear, especially, the back as bent to the point that the rear wheel doesn't align with the frame anymore.

I'll have to substitue the frame one of these days and will probably go for one of the new wave aero road frames. The Cervélo Soloist made a name for itself by introducing this new concept of aero frames besides delivering quite a good looking package.

But the new Time is outstanding, the neatest bike I've ever seen. In doubt? Check these photos:

So, between that and the Soloist, what would you go for?
