    Torn between Scalpel 2 and 3, please help!

    Need some opinions: Carbon 2 or Alloy 3?
    Is the $2,000.00 difference in price really worth it?
    I just demo'd a new Carbon 2 yesterday (in some nasty,rocky, muddy conditions), and I must honestly say that this is most awesomest (is that even a word) bike that I have ever ridden.
    The handling on this bike was amazing, it climbed fantastic and the suspension worked flawlessly... Unfortunately I cannot afford the $$$$ pricetag, at least until my 2012 heavily upgraded Remedy 9 is sold.
    I am also seriously considering the Alloy 3 version instead, and was hoping for some opinions on that, especially from someone that may have ridden both bikes...I do not have the ability to demo a 3, but I have seen some great reviews so far on it.
    Fortunately I already own a Fash and have a brand new Crest wheelset that could easily be swapped out with the lesser wheels of the stock 3.
    Any thoughts would be great, Thanks!
