i would go for the only one made in the USA, the cannondale. the frame is great, the F300 has got lower end components, but who cares. and im sure the other ones do as well.

These questions always depend on the kind of riding you are doing/how often you want to ride and a ton of other factors. For me, I'd take the Cannondale - but any one of those might be better for you. Give them all a test ride

Why does that even matter? Do you seriously belive welding/manufacturing is better in the US than in any other place? I reassure you that a Cannondale frame welded in the USA will be just as good as a Cannondale frame welded in Taiwan and I wouldn't be surprised if the frame welded in Taiwan was actually better. Get real man.

And to know which bike is best for you we need to know your riding style, needs, etc, etc, etc
