I have ridden it briefly - see my previous comments on this thread. It is slightly better, but not night and day different in its ride quality. That view is commensurate with published reviews. Overall the Evo is a very well balanced ride - pretty comfy, pretty stiff, quite light, handles well. I just find riding along it doesn't have that 'alive' feeling, that you're hurtling along, that you're faster than you actually are. It works and thats it. It doesnt inspire. Its plain old 'good'. Its not special, but at the same time, it is one of the better framesets on the market.
That's good enough for me

Double check tire clearance, and if you can run 25 or even 28mm tires, then none of the bikes you listed will be uncomfortable.
Once you've done that, honestly, if this is how you feel about weight and aero, ALL of those bikes will do just fine*, and you should speak the one you like the looks of the most. Which I presume will be the SS Evo.
*assuming you will fit on all of them fine
Most of the newer frames can run 28 mm or even wider tyres...
Yes, I'm leaning towards SS EVO HM...

Holy hell, you'd need to be a cycling journo to have ridden all those!
My opnion is weak as I haven't ridden all those bikes but IMHO would opt for the Emonda or SuperSix.
Ridden:I really like the Emonda for climbing and it's good on descents. Fuji SL is a nice too framset too and worth considering.
Reputation: I rented a CAAD12 and loved it so a Supersix would obviously be on my list, and the TCR and Canyon get rave reviews as well. Rented two S-Works SL5s, felt a bit dead and stiff but very capable, SL6 could be much better. I rented a Cervelo R3 and I didn't really get on with the handling on corners and at high speeds, but the R5 could also be better.
If I rode them all, there wouldn't be this thread
I was hoping for the first hand experience from the owners...
I think every bike mentioned is great, and some maybe insignificant differences could be the key factor for deciding, like name, colour, etc...
Fuji SL, yes also very nice bike...
Interesting that about R3, diegogarcia is saying the same thing for R5...
