Interested in upgrading bike. Thoughts on these three

I am thinking about upgrading my endurance Giant Defy to an aero bike. Aerodynamic, a bit lighter, and a bit lower to the ground. I basically want to move a little faster with the most efficient wattage.

​​​​​​Which of these would you go with and why?

1. Trek Madone

2. Canyon Aeroad CF SLX

3. Specialized Venge Vias

The Madone, because no one sells the other 2 here .

in fact the Madone is above what any of the locals are looking for .. in price,

So it would be special ordered. it won't be in regular stock...

Save some money and get an Allez Sprint. More aero than the first gen venge.
