Don't be tempted by the 'this offer is only good for the next 30 mins' etc. I rode maybe 8 bikes and in the end bought the 1st one I tested. As HappyHunter mentioned above, fit is the most important thing. I bought a Trek Domane, partly because I thought the whole iso speed decoupler in the frame sounded like a clever idea but mostly because it felt the most comfortable (but still light and fast) of all the bikes I tested. I'd like to think the comfort was partially due to the iso speed, but at the end it was the feel/fit.
I got a trek domane project 1 with dura-ace di2, i put hed ardennes plus 25mm wide rims on it, the thing is a rocket, stiffer in the bottom end than a madone but way more comfortable to ride.
I was coming down lake mountain and it 70kph, i could have gone faster but the organic component failed (me).
It is light fast and comfortable, i couldnt wish for anything more ( dont ask how much it cost)
