    '05 Giant XtC vs. '05 C'dale F400 vs. '05 Devinci Phantom

    the title pretty much says it all... looking for a XC race-suitable bike for less money. i have virtually no bike budget, so i want the most bang for the $, which favours the giant. i don't have prices, but here are some componentry highlights:

    XtC
    -RockShox Duke XC 80mm
    -FD: deore
    -RD/Shifts: X-7
    -Mavic(rims), easton(bar/stem/etc), race face(crankset)
    -SPD clipless

    F400
    -HeadShok Super Fatty DL 80mm
    -FD: deore
    -RD/shifts: X-7
    -Sun, CODA, Truvativ
    -wellgo w/ straps

    Phantom
    -Marzocchi EXR Race 105mm
    -Deore everthing
    -Mavic, Easton
    -SPD clipless

    this will be used almost only for racing, i have a ss for ridin' and training. i don't need 100mm or lockout, i prefer SRAM and i will probably buy Crank Bros pedals. i can switch to lighter wheels, which are currently on the ss.
    ~180 lb/5'11"
