I am down to the last two bikes for my choice either a

Felt Q920

or

Specialized Rockhopper SL Expert

Being a bit of a newbie as far as I can tell in my simplistic world, the Felt has a better fork (Rockshox recon sl solo air with Turnkey lockout 100mm travel) but the Specialized has better brakes (Avid Elixir 4 hydraulic disc). Is this about right? Has anyone ridden these and got a view - I am struggling to find info!

Thanks !
