It really depends on what you like, both in the saddle, after the ride, and on days when you want to give your legs a break.  Also, the time of year makes a big difference.  Summer in Moab/Fruita?  No way, unless you can watch the weather and go when the forecast calls for mild temps.  Fruita will tend to be cooler and you have the option of higher elevation riding, like Palisade Rim, which is close by.  Spring in CB?  Mudfest, forget it, especially this year since they got a lot of snow.  CB in July?  Heaven, if you can ignore the crowds.  Nice ambience in and around town?  CB is the place, always.
