Specialized Roubaix Sport 105 or Cannondale Synapse Carbon 6?

Hello everyone! After 20yrs. since my last ride, I've decided to get back into cycling again. After going to 6 different bike shops to look at what kind of bikes are out there now, I've decided to purchase an endurance bike from one of LBS that's near me. (The service was great!) They carry Specialized and Cannondale bikes. I don't want to spend a whole lot of $, so it came down to Specialized Roubaix Sport 105 or the Cannondale Synapse Carbon 6. Its around the same price but which bike
would be a better? Especially in long rides? Does anyone know? Thanks!

Both are good bikes. Take them out and ride both of theme and see which one feels better and fits better. That is the one you want. If they feel the same, I would lean towards the Roubaix, but thats me. The fit of the bike and how it feels to you is how you should decide, not brand X over brand Y.
