Any insight?

I'm torn between 2010 Fuji Cross Comp SRAM Apex, 2011 Cannondale CAADX Tiagra, and 2011 Ridley X-Bow Tiagra. Insight, direction, opinion?

I have a C-dale SuperX for riding on crappy roads in northern NM. Brilliant! (the bike, not the roads...)

It's Christmas-- Buy all of them.

Spec would seem about the same on each so if the test ride doesn't sort the bike out--look at the quality of the wheels. Might save a bit of money in a few months time.

BUT pics are necessary so we can tell you that you bought the wrong bike and should have bought one of the others.

Same dealer or different dealers?

If it's different dealers, pick the one you like best and buy from them. Who do you want to be dealing with for service after the sale, advice on clothing and accessories and, if need be, warranty issues?
