Trying to decide between two bikes, the Specialized Safire and the Cannondale Lexi 1 - I can get a comparable deal on both - great deals. I've had a Cannondale Jekyl that's a size too big, so finally gonna get something that fits. My riding tends to be less technical, but like long, long days on the bike.

I demoed a Safire and hated it. The geometry was just really freaking awkward, despite the fact that I ride a women's specific Specialized road bike. I ended up with a unisex bike and don't regret it one bit. But that's just me, and YMMV.

The best thing for you to do is get on both bikes and see what you like the best. It is also my opinion that the lefty on the Cannondale is an amazing Fork/shock and well worth it. I have a lefty on my F4 and don't want any other kind of fork.
