I am choosing between a Cannondale Synapse 6 or a Giant OCR 2...there is a little bit of a price difference. Is it worth the extra money for the Cannondale? btw this will be my first road bike.

What's the price difference? Looks like the Cannondale spec'd slightly better. The c'dale is runs all shimano tiagra level stuff, while the Giant uses a mix of tiagra and sora (sora is one level below tiagra in shimano's hierachry).

Also what's the price differenc ebetween the Synapse 6 and the Synapse 5? The 5 uses 10spd 105 level components, while the other bikes you are looking at are all 9 speed bikes. BTW this is just an additional cog in the back, it doesn't mean you necessarily get an easier gear or are able to go faster, it's just the newer "standard" for shimano.
