New Bike

I am looking to buy a new bike with an emphasis on comfort during long rides (centuries). I have narrowed my search down to 6:

Bianchi Vertigo 105 $1999
Specialized Roubaix Elite Apex Compact $2300
Cannondale Synapse Carbon 5 105 $2330
Cervelo R3 105 $2600
Trek Domane 4.5 $2729
Bianchi Infinito 105 $2799

I have only ridden the Vertigo in the wrong size, but I did love it compared to my current Trek 1.2. I do plan on finding and thoroughly test riding all the bikes on the list before making my decision. The LBS that I prefer sells Specialized and Bianchi.

Any advice would be appreciated, especially on how to tell if a bike fits and what to look for on a test ride. Advice on pedals and shoes are also needed.
