Cannondale Quick 4 vs Cannondale Badboy vs Trek 7.4 vs Specialized Sirrus Elite

Hi everyone, Am brand new here but looking for some advice. I'm about to buy my first bike and I've been doing some research and have narrowed my choice down to one of these four. They all seem suitable for my riding style (commuting to work every day and day trips on the road every second week or so). I'm yet to test ride any of them yet as it is hard for me to get to a bike shop where I live (Japan). By looking at the specs of these bikes is there any one that stands out or any that I should rule out as being not on par with the rest?

Cannondale Quick 4

Cannondale Bad Boy

Trek 7.4 FX

Specialized Sirrus Elite
http://www.specialized.com/ja/ja/bc/...83%BC%E3%82%B9

These links are for the Japanese site but all the specs are in English.
Also I'll more than likely be getting the 2012 version of whichever one I choose but I doubt the specs will change much from the ones listed on the sites.

Any help or advice you could give will be greatly appreciated.

It's hard to get to a bike shop in Japan?? Where in Japan are you? I know nothing about the comparison between the bikes you linked. I'm lucky because there are hundreds of bike shops here in Kyoto, and they carry all the bikes you are interested in.
If you can wait, I strongly recommend visiting one of these events http://www.cyclemode.net/ if you can't find a shop stocking Cannondale, Specialized or Trek.

Thanks for the link. I'll check it out if I don't get a bike by then. Was hoping to buy my bike before November though. Anyway I've narrowed my choice down to the Trek 7.4 or the Cannondale Quick 4. Will keep thinking about it.
