    I think you'll get more answers if you stop shouting. Does your keyboard have stuck keys?

    Just from looking at the pics, I like the Haro. You getting these from a LBS? I don't think I'm looking at the right bikes. The Haro is listed for $600 at Sun & Ski and the Marin is listed for $1,200. The Marin fork is a RockShox TORA SOLO AIR 29er which is better than the Haro.

    Are you looking for re-sale value or are you looking to find a bike that you will actually ride?

    Nobody can tell you what bike you will like. You can ask for peoples expereince with different bikes/setups but you like what you like. Try different bikes out find what YOU like. Some folks can only ride the best, while others are happy on older tech. I made the mistake of buying what LBS folks told me to get.

    Relax - you're gonna blow a gasket, pop a vein, have a stroke.......

    This is not a matter of life and death and only you know which is best for you.

    Seriously, buy the bike that fits the best and feels the most comfortable in the way it handles.

    If that doesn't work, buy the one that will make you want to ride it the most.
