Felt Q620 2012, brand new with extras for $500....do it? Or, other choices listed

He's ridden it once and has lights and other doo-dads with it. He says he paid $1200 at LBS but I think the MSRP is $699? Anyway, when I sprung that on him, he lowered the $600 price to $500 which is pretty compelling. I don't like that the Rockshox fork has no lockout as I will be on some trails/pavement but other than that, it's a pretty good deal I think.

I'm also looking at a Giant XTC Alliance with little use and lots of upgrades for $750 so while the Felt price is good....I wouldn't have to do anything to this one. Also considering a Jamis Dakota DXC Race for $650. All are either brand new or like new condition.

Dilemma....

I know you're going to say to ride them...and I will....just curious where to start and I'd like to start with the best deal.

thanks, John

A brand new trek marlin can be had at your local bike shop for less than $600 right now due to the end of model-year sale.
