I like the Schwinn Madison a lot more than the Duratec T8, but I am notoriously strongly biased towards steel frames.
Maybe a pic of that rusty BB?
Also, are you talking built-up bikes or framesets only? If it's bikes, it would be nice to know the components in question. The Schwinn comes with very basic components by default, but I dunno about the Duratec - it might be even worse for all we know.
The Duratec seems slightly better suited for the road, geometry-wise. I don't like the fact that it uses an integrated headset. Pressed-in cups make so much more sense in the long run.
