2nd opinions on 2 bikes

I currently ride an older Trek 7100 and am looking at upgrading. I'm going to ride test ride 2 bikes tomorrow and am looking for a second opinion between these 2:

Felt Verza City
Verza City - Felt Bicycles

Cannondale Quick 4
Quick 4 - RECREATION & URBAN - BIKES - 2014

The paired spokes on the Cannondale have me curious as to if they will suit my riding. I am 95% on paved trails and rural highways, 5% on dirt trails. I average about 60 miles a week and do at least one week long trip averaging 60 miles a day a year. On the long trips I do have rear panniers and carry about 25 pounds of camping gear on the bike.

I'm also open to other bike suggestions, my only requirement is that I don't want any suspension, my 7100 has a suspension fork and I don't care for it. Thanks.

There's no comparison. It's a no brainer. The Cannondale wins hands down!

The Cannondale not only has better drivetrain componentry, it also has a carbon fiber fork!

Hope this helps!

Ride both, then decide. I just couldn't get comfortable on the two cannondales I tried, but felt really comfortable on the specialized! Long test rides are critical.
