Torn between the two , Cannondale is a complete bike . The Specialized is a frame only , but will go with the new red on it . The frame is a 2013 . Anyone with opinions feel free .

I'd go for the Evo for no other reason than it doesn't have a pointlessly curved top tube.
Which one fits YOU?
I just went through the same ....in my size, the EVO fit perfect. The Speicialized might have with some stem/bar/seatpost changing....
I bought the EVO
I'm pretty sure either can be made to fit the same with proper selection of components and adjustment.
... 'cuz that's how I roll.
Cannondale has lifetime warranty. Specialized has?
They both are lifetime on the frame, one year on the components.
If they both fit and feel good, save some$$$. Go with the less expensive.
I'm leaning towards the Cannondale , I saw the Specialized Frame for sale , start adding components it's a lot more than the Cannondale .
I have an EVO 1 (2012) and I can tell you that your making the right choice!! That bike is everything you need and more!!! Dont even think about it anymore. Get it!!
