I am trying to make best choice and am considering such bikes:
1. C'dale R500 (CAAD5 - fits my budget - TIAGRA)
2. C'dale R700 (CAAD8 - more expensive - TAGRA)
3. TCR2 (alu) - 105/ultegra - but not full 105
4. OCR1 (alu) - ultegra - but not full ultegra

what are the ride styles of uplisted bikes. I am trying to get my first real road bike and it must be good and fast. HELP

Couple points

Giant's OCR line are designed a little more for comfort with a more upright riding position. The TCR and the Cannondales are more of a racing design. I'm not saying one is better, or even significantly faster, than the other. Depending on your body and the type of riding you do you might find one more comfortable than another. Try them and see.

One other thing is that Giant has fewer sizes than most. There is some flexibility within one frame size, but if you are right in the middle between sizes you might have a hard time getting a good fit.
