Narrowed down my choice to Fuji Team and Specialized Comp. Thoughts?
Thanks.

I know lots about the Fuji Team. I get the CC catalogue (study it extensively on the toilet) and have a friend that bought one last year. I know nothing of the Specialized Comp. My friend was going to buy a Specialized bike for around $1100 at Performance. It was aluminium, had a bladed down tube and a mix of components (nothing above 105). For $300 more, the Fuji was a much better buy. Its full Ultegra, has a fancy set of wheels, nice tires, decent saddle/stem/bar nice fork and pedals. The Specialized had a number of Specialized parts on it, no pedals, and so-so wheels.

Line up the specs on both bikes and you'll get comments.

Personally, I think the Fuji Team is a hell of a deal. I'd be surprised if the Specialized is in the same ballpark as far as bang for the buck. But, I don't know much about it either.
