Test ride them. Race bikes could "feel" move lively, zippy and fun. I tested a CAAD10 and a Synapse and preferred the feeling of the CAAD10 over the Synapse. I had more fun riding it.

Go with a 'cross bike or an aggressive gravel bike to get that road bike feel. You'll have the tire clearance if you ever want to go bigger (you will) and the fun aggressive handling of a road bike.
