The Emonda has a slightly more relaxed geometry, the CAAD12 has a more aggressive race geometry. Just saying.

Yeah, but you can easily accomplish the same fit with a stem swap.

I'm sure I will get some disagreements here. But unless you will be riding in the rain a lot, disc brakes are not worth the extra initial cost, nor the added maintenance down the road. The newer 105 rim brakes actually have excellent modulation and are a far cry from rim brakes of yesteryear.

I agree and I am not convinced discs are worth the added weight they add to the bike. Unless you are doing the kind of riding that makes them essential or really important, I would opt for the rim brakes.
