Welcome to Bike Forums.
The Jamis Quest posting has been deleted. Sold?
IMHO I'd go with the Felt (I own a Felt
) or the Specialized.
I'm guessing you're on the short side (5'-8" or less) since they're all 52-53 cm frames.
The Mercier and the Jamis Eclipse are doubles. The others are triples. Triples are for lots of climbing (BIG hills and mountains) so the extra chainring is kind of a waste.
Have you visited any bike shops in your area? You may find a good deal on an entry level road bike in the same price range.
Let us know what bike you get.
