The problem is the Fuji I can't test ride that's less than 2 hours away and the LBS is closed for a couple weeks during xmas so I can't test ride a Cannondale. I was reading on Cannondale and the frames are redesigned to 'flex' more in the tail with the flattened areas of the tail section. So really I'm wondering if this frame is worth spending $300 more on when the Fuji has the same pretty much in components?

Anyone know the difference in quality or ride?
