The '04 Roadie was the first with the OS2 tubeset we launched in late '03. The '04 and '05 share the same tubeset and handling. The only difference is the '05 went to what we call a slammed or semi-compact design you see on the site now.
Ride quality would be virtually identical.
The Roadie is a quick-handling machine as most owners will attest. it is a direct spin-off of the Waterford 2200 with a modified head angle to accomodate mass-production forks (like Profile). If you want a great bike for spirited riding and training there is no doubt that it would be the machine.
The Sport is the ultimate in a high performance recreational use road bike. This may be the best fit for the type of riding you describe and may be a smoother transition from your touring bike.

Thanks for your comments. I hope to get a closer look and a test ride of the Roadie (and Sport?) on Friday. Its been a long time since I was on a bike other than my Trek. I can't wait to see how far bike technology has come.
