    New question here. What to Buy? 2005 Shift R7 or R5

    Ok need some help folks.
    I am looking at buying a Haro. either the R7 or R5. I will be moving to New Orleans soon. Not a lot of Mountains down there, I can get good prices on both bikes, the question is, is it worth it for me to buy an R7 or save the extra $$$. I wont be hitting and real mountain for at least a year or two. I wont be able to get these good a deals again. I am sure. But dont want to spend the extra $$ if it is not really worth it. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Id say go with the R7 because the black is a great fork for trail or pretty much any riding but I dont know the price difference so if you could give an estimate itd be helpful

    I am looking at a 400.00 $ price difference in bikes roughly...
    Is it worth it for basically a flat lander at this point to even consider the 7?

    One nice thing about the R7 is the SPV rear shock. Makes single pivot bikes perform really good - especially in the flat areas where you spend a lot of time pedalling in the saddle.

    oops, sorry, I was thinking about the 2004 Werks XLS R7 - that had the SPV shock. It looks like the 2005 Shift R7 doesn't have an SPV shock.
