I have a carbon Fenix frame and it is absolutely the best bike in the world. It doesn't do anything spectaculary but it does everything. Mines been to it's birth place, Flanders and Roubaix. Planning on taking it to the Etape next year. The frame is slightly heavy than equivilants as it is overbuilt for cobbles, but the smoothness of the ride leaves you fresh enough for that extra effort.

Get one and you'll not regret it.

I can't comment on those bikes other than to say that between a Fuji, a Ridley and a Pinarello, you aren't going to get a bad bike regardless of your choice. Ride them all and pick which one feels/looks the best. Pick the one that will drag you out of bed early to get outside on a Sunday morning!

Oh, but be careful with Halfords - it sounds like they are improving all the time, but there are stories abound of bikes being set up wrongly/dangerously by the staff there.
