Unable to decide and getting agravated. I am looking for a race specific XC machine, I was wanting to get it before the fall NORBA series. I am 5'6 @ 150 pounds and ride nothing but XC. I dont Xmtn,freeride/huck or DH. I can't decide to support my LBS or purchase from web retailers. Sure you save a few bucks from web retailers but with LBS if there is a issue, warranty ect.., you have local support. Tested the following: 04' NRS AIR, 04' Trek Fuel 100,98 and 95. 03' Turner Burner, 03' & 04' Specialized Epic & FSR and 04' Tomac Revolver Al. I was going to get the Tomac Revolver, it is fast, real fast, low center of gravity, 11.75" BB height. Designed by Manitou founder Doug Bradbury and John Tomac. I really want this bike but this is were the delimma begins. Manufactures are releasing the 05's soon! Do I buy now or wait for the 05's. I don't want to be kicking myself in the ass later for acting impulsively. I don't want to spend $3-4K and eat crow. If anyone at all has experienced this kind of cold feet or delimma please help me out. All advice is appreciated.
