Please help I cannot make up my mind!!!

I am buying a bike from evans because they are far cheaper than anything here in Ireland.
However this means I can't test ride them. As far as I can see they are quite evenly specced.
Which one has the most potential to be upgraded?? ie which has the best frame

Scott Speedster S40 27-sp 2008 Road Bike £599
Specialized Allez Sport 2008 Road Bike£599.99
Cannondale Synapse Tiagra Triple 2008 Road Bike£619.99

    I looked at both the Scott and the Cannondale! Eventually bought the Scott s40 but in a compact double rather than the triple. Picked it up for a rather reasonable 569 with two free services from my local bike shop after showing them it was on "pedal on" at the same price!

    I've not had much chance to go out on it as yet, but it looks fantastic in my hallway!!! The frame quality seems excellent and the groupset works fine for what I need. From my experience so far I can heartliy recommend it.

    The Cannondale had a slightly more relaxed geometry and I felt a little more upright in riding position. I'm not using the bike for commuting, just training so for me the slightly more forward riding position of the Scott sold it. Other wise I don't think there's a lot between them.

    Good luck, with whichever you choose I'm sure you'll be happy.
