Test ride all three bikes. The bike that feels the most comfortable and is more enjoyable, is the one that you should select.

PS.

When in doubt, always go with Cannondale!

Slimrider hit it spot on as usual. Now if it were me in that situation I would definitely go with the Supersix apex.

Cool.I was thinking the super 6 too.The gt has the older s105 5600 set and i like the apex set better.After riding a 30 lb mt bike for years this will be like a crotch rocket.I actually ride my mt bike on the road a lot because its a good workout. I do a 21-22 mile loop every other day or so.Its gotten easy so i want to be able to do 30-50 mile road rides on a road bike and just mt bike off road. Thanks
