|Which frame is more comfortable? stiffer?
Why it's so hard to find information on Principia bikes?

|There you should get sufficient information from the manufacturer/dealer perspective (including 2003 catalogue as pdf-file).
Principia RSL; Cannondale CAAD4 (both 2001 models with 1-1/8" steerer tube):
- stiffness steerer tube 83,1 Nm/°; 85,5
- stiffness BB 81,6 Nm/°; 87,8
- wheight 1,34 kg (57,5 cm frame); 1,31 (55,5)

My opinion: Consider comfort when you chose the tires, but don't expect any noticeable difference from the frames - they are both 1,3 kg oversized aluminium frames.
Conclusion: Buy the one which colour you like best or which is cheaper.
