Should I get a Trek 69er?

I went to my LBS yesterday and tried the GF Tass, GF Cobia and Trek 69er. The Trek 69er was awesome and I definitely liked it the most...it's just about $700 more than I was planning on spending. Anyone have a Trek 69er and how do you like it?

Great point, I was just looking for some convincing to justify spending the extra $700.

I say buy the Trek, it looks pretty sick and I've heard nothing but good stuff about it. If you like it, go for it.

However, the component specs are pretty much the same as the $1,500 bikes, so...

Not sure there are too many sub-$1500 bikes with a Fox front end - thats a $650 front shock.
