I'm straying some from the opinion you're asking for, but I'd be curious what you're looking to gain going with either the Madone or SuperSix. It would be cheaper to upgrade your CAAD (lighter wheelset/ 10 speed), so going that route may be worth considering.

Re: the other bikes, my suggestion is to ride both (out on the roads, back to back, if possible) with tire pressures equalized. The bike that fits/ feels the best, wins. This method will also determine if the differences in geo (mainly,the HTL's) is an issue for you.

Re: specs, the Madone trumps the C'dales crankset, but (IMO) the C'dale would be the higher quality frameset. From my (albeit limited) research, Trek CF bikes have had more than their share of problems with their BB86/90 BB's.
