New relaxed Geometry Bike

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

New relaxed Geometry Bike

I'm in the market for a relaxed geometry road bike. I've been away at work for some time (3 months) and am doing some internet research (probably over thinking this).
I'd like to go with Sram group so considering the following:

Look 566 with Sram Rival
Cervelo RS with Sram Rival
Cannondale Synapse Carbon 4 with Rival

Price wise they all come in close around $2500.00

Any of you guys have an opinion or able to recommend anything else.
Hope to make the purchase when I get back to US at the end of February.

Yep - the RS is at the top of my list - likewise I've not seen a bad review and more advanced cycling friend all seem to ride a Cervelo of some type. I'm not worried about the seat stays - I'm sure they have been well tested. Only down side of the RS is no one seems to be offering any discount - I guess that's a sign that demand is high.
