Been looking to buy a new bike for a while, and in the last couple weeks I've narrowed my search down to 2 bikes. I've owned a specialized previously and I was pleased with the ride (downhill custom build).

I liked the Stumpy Pro Carbon at the demo, and then there was the SC Blur LTc. I can't recall the exact kit on the SC that I tried, though.

My main question is where should I be looking for a good deal on one? I've only managed to find $500 off the website's MSRP.

Also, if any of you fine people own either bike (especially the stumpy) could you share your thoughts having owned one and actually ridden it a decent amount?

I appreciate anyone's help!
