I've had two Cannondale's (T1000 and T400, same frame different components) and two Trek 520s. Both are good bikes. I like the ride better on the Cannondale. The steel frame of the Trek 520 was a plus after my aluminum frame on the Cannondale broke in Australia. Also a plus since it doesn't get dented the same way by the airlines.
I don't think you can go too wrong with either bike. If most of my riding was in the US, Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, etc than I would favor a Cannondale T700. If I were riding in the third world, I would favor the Trek 520.
