    There's a reason why there's road bikes and mountain bikes. There's no way that a mountain bike will be faster than a road bike. Even if you swap out the tires.

    I believe that is a biased answer. There's no way that a mountain bike crank set/gearing would be quicker than a road bike style crank set/gearing.

    The Cafe Latte is a better bike. You can't really fit a bike to you if purchasing online. All you can do is hope that it fits well and take your chances.

    Yeah, it will depend on what the OP is looking for. I'm more of a speed demon, so that's why I pick the Allegro Elite. If you want comfort, then maybe the Coda Elite would be better.

    The Allegro is more of a road bike. Which will be more speedy. I prefer the Allegro over the Coda. I like the Allegro 12-30t 10 speed 50/34 over the 11-32 9 speed 48/36/36t Coda.

    suspensions also adds more weight to the bike. Which will slow it down. If you are concern about comfort, then get a bike with carbon forks.

    I say get the Fuji. Better price, components, cassette and crank set. The Specialized has a 10 speed 11-36 48/34 chain ring. Not a big fan of this setup.

    You'll get more gears options on 10 speed vs a 9 or 8 speed etc. That way when you won't be shifting the front derailleur as much. Plus as the higher the speed, mostly the better the derailleurs are.
