Assuming that I can get them for the same price, which bike would you get? The bike from RS cycle doesn't come assembled (extra fee, but would probably do it myself), while the bike from Performance does. Also the bike from performance would have free tune ups for life, and I would get 10% credit towards gear. I like the fork on the RS Cycle better, and I think the performance cycle has better brakes. I dunno, what would you do?

I'm sure I don't know, but I'd like to see what someone with more experience says as well. I was about to pull the trigger on the 5.5 myself.

If anyone could contrast the fork and shifters on these bikes I'd be grateful. The rest seems pretty much the same or obvious where the advantage lies.
