I voted for the Felt mainly because of their great customer service. I only have experience with Felt, Fuji, and Giant so I cannot be objective with the Polygon, Reid, or Cell. Of the first three, they are almost equal in terms of build quality and components. Your best bet is to test ride the ones that you can and base your choice on which ever one feels best to you.

Hey I ended up not voting because I am not to experienced in cycling. Only thing I can say is I recently bought the felt z85 and love it. Idk what you are looking to get out of your bike but it comes with the 105 group and all that. Looks good and most importantly for me who is new it is comfortable. The diff of z and f for felt is z is a little more relaxed for longer rides without compromising very much speed at all where f series is the race styling. More aerodynamic and for me a little more uncomfortable since I ride for many reasons few are for actual intense races. So that's my input, very limited experience just food for thought, many companies have the 2 different series so check it out!

Just joined and I too am inexperienced in the decision making. I currently am looking for a new bike and torn between 2 one of them is the GIANT Defy 3. Been doing a ton of research and it seems the best bike for price.
