copperhead vs VSE?

Hi, I need some opnions on Diamond Back's Copperhead, and Haro's VSE...
The VSE seems to be looser on the front suspension...the copperhead have better components...but feels heavier...which would also be a concern for me....Price wise, both are in within my budget.
What do you think of these?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
Thank you!!

Funny how that HARO is 05 and no where to be found on the web site....... VERY strange and red flagish....that being said the Haro is a better bike, WAY stronger frame, gussets etc. very beefy..... I would shy away from online anyways, hit your LBS you may pay more but you get warranties etc etc and will be MUCH better for you...

Hey dude, thx for your reply...yeh, the VSE is not on Haro's official web page...guess it's the lower model maybe? I've test ridden both bikes, the Haro feels lighter, but the Diamond Back feels more solid somehow. The only thing about the Haro VSE are the weak front shocks. And the DB, color and maybe the weight...But both seems to be a pretty good deal...hard to decide.
