I hate to add another what-to-buy thread but I don't want to make a bad call on a bike.
My LBS has a Cannondale Trail SL1 I was going to buy but then I see that the Superfly Al is discounted to only be $100 more. ($1,500 vs. $1,600 if it matters.)
Spec-wise it means a RockShox Reba RL Solo Air vs. RockShox Recon Gold TK, and on the Trek virtually all the ancillary stuff is Bontrager vs. Cannondale's in-house stuff. The Trek also has a remote lockout which is nice.
Am I splitting hairs here or missing out on a huge upgrade that's well worth the extra hundred bucks? I hear MBAction recently gave a thumbs-up on the Cannondale which is encouraging.
Please chime in if you can offer any advice. Either way I'll be on a new bike this week.
