2017 Specialized Sirrus Comp VS 2017 Cannondale Quick Carbon 1?

Hi guys,
I need some help deciding btw the 2017 Specialized Sirrus Comp and the 2017 Cannondale Quick Carbon 1.
Both bikes are around the same price ($1600 vs $1800), does one of these bikes offer more for the money than the other?

If you want to spend that much get the Cannondale Quick Carbon 1 Disc

These high-end hybrids are "performance oriented"... meaning they have roadbike gearing which isn't the best for hilly areas.
If you live somewhere flat that's fine.
Also the tires are the same you'd find on a roadbike, not that comfortable.

Are you sure this is the kind of bike you want/need ?

I live in NYC, this new bike would be for some basic bike rides in Central Park or West Side Highway Park.
I want a bike that is light (carbon frame) and has disc brakes, I was just wondering if there is a BIG difference btw these 2 models. I can see that the Specialized has Shimano Tiagra vs Cannondale Shimano 105 so it looks to me that the Cannondale might pack slightly better components than the Specialized.

Try before you buy

Cannondale Quick geometry is different from Sirrus. I have a long torso, and couldn't get comfortable on the Quick. This was a few years ago, but may still be true.

I tried both bikes today and I must confessed, I preferred the shifting on the Sirrus.

Why not try the Sirrus Expert Carbon or the X1? In the UK the Sirrus Expert Carbon X1 is the same price as the Cannondale Quick Carbon 1 and has much better components (in my opinion).
