    bikesdirect vs iron horse, which one is better ?

    I'm considering bikesdirect and performance bikes, and bikesdirect seems to have way too much inflated prices. So, just to take an example, how would the follwoing two bikes compare ?

    and
    http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...tom_comp08.htm

    I also have a performance bike store in my city, so thats an added bonus, with their free lifetime tuneups

    I'm a bit unfamiliar with the components, hence my query here to the more knowledgeable folks

    Specs seem close to me
    and the bike at performance will cost you about $100 more; unless you catch a promotion from them
    but you get free tune-ups which is nice if you do not do your own work

    The drivetrain is really odd for the Ironhorse.
