    Deciding between the three... Top Fuel 8, RIP9 and Superfly

    I am in the market for a FS bike, currently looking at the following.

    2011 Trek Top Fuel 8 with XT components 120mm travel $1200 (26er, but damn it is a clean bike)
    Rear Suspension: Fox Float RP-2, "race tuned" w/ProPedal, rebound
    Front Suspension: Fox Series 32 fork, 100mm of travel. Avid Juicy 7 Hydraulic Disc Brakes

    2011 Niner Rip9 with Sram X7 comps 120mm travel. $2200
    RoxShox, fox rear

    2012 Trek Superfly 29er 100mm travel $1500
    Fox shocks

    I would like some thoughts on these bikes from the knowledgeable.

    Is the RIP9 worth the extra coin?

    Got pic?

    Unless you have to have a 29er, I'd go with EX8 Trek. I love my Rip9 but it's the most expensive from your line up, it's worth the extra coins.
